The rights extended to individuals accused of a crime can be found in the Fourth-Eighth Amendments of the Constitution. These rights include the parameters of how, when, and why law enforcement can conduct a search of a person or property. They also establish what is probable cause and reasonable suspicion. The Constitution also addresses Miranda rights, protection against self-incrimination, double jeopardy, the right to a trial by jury, and due process of law. These amendments also guarantee against excessive bail and cruel and unusual punishment. Part of the Exploring Our Nation Series.
