'No person shall be held to answer for a capital,

or otherwise infamous crime,

unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury,

except in cases arising in the land or naval forces,

or in the militia,

when in actual service in time of war or public danger;

nor shall any person be subject for the same offense

to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb;

nor shall be compelled in any criminal case

to be a witness against himself,

nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property,

without due process of law;

nor shall private property be taken for public use,

without just compensation.'

The Fifth Amendment creates a number of rights

relevant to both criminal and civil legal proceedings.

 

In criminal cases,

the Fifth Amendment guarantees

the right to a grand jury,

forbids “double jeopardy,”

and protects against self-incrimination.

 

It also requires that “due process of law”

be part of any proceeding

that denies a citizen “life, liberty or property”

and requires the government to compensate citizens

when it takes private property for public use.
