Trial Rights

Just as individuals have rights during the arrest and investigation stages, they also have rights during a trial - beginning with the right to a speedy trial itself. Defendants also have the right to face their accusers, the right to refuse to incriminate themselves, and the right to avoid being prosecuted twice for the same offense, among others. This section lists the trial rights that individuals have and describes how they operate.
