Rights of the Accused
  • Writ of Habeas Corpus—A court order which prevents unjust arrests and imprisonment
  • Bills of Attainder—laws passed by Congress that inflict punishment without a court trial
  • Ex Post Facto Laws—new laws cannot apply to things that happened in the past

Grand Jury
  • A grand juryis the formal device by which a person can be accused of a serious crime.
  • It is required for federal courts under the 5th Amendment.
  • The grand jury deliberates on whether the prosecution’sindictment,a formal complaint, presents enough evidence against the accused to justify a trial.
  • Only the prosecution presents evidence.
  • The right to a grand jury is not covered by the 14th Amendment’s Due Process Clause. Most States have legislated to skip the grand jury stage.
