Issues Regarding the US Constitution’s Fifth Amendment
This law protects the person from incriminating himself to a crime, from possible improper methods to be used by law enforcement either through deceit, coercion or threats (Snitker). By encouraging silence in the face of the need for legal defense, this law wisely leads the accused to seek legal assistance.
Protection to the Criminal Defendant
Self-preservation is a natural right of any person and he may abuse this right by unknowingly withholding cooperation in judicial processes against crime. Excessive protection can be treated with reasonable approaches by law enforcement so that the Fifth will not overly and inappropriately protect defendants.
