How a Person Is Exculpated…


The US Constitution sets forth principles of justice, including important rights for people who are accused of crimes.

The Sixth Amendment of the US Constitution explicitly states that every US citizen has the right to a fair and speedy trial.

The US justice system gives accused individuals the opportunity to plead their cases and be exculpated (see definition and hear pronunciation below) of crimes if proven innocent.

For more than 200 years, the US Constitution has served as the foundation of a solid democracy, providing due process and protections for its citizens.
