- Describe the range of proceedings in which protection of the Fifth
Amendment privilege gives against self-incrimination and how they may be
either invoked or waived. Cite a real life, high profile court case
where a key witness, or even the defendant, invoked his or her Fifth
Amendment right and how it affected the outcome of the case. Also
explain the three requirements needed to trigger protection of the
privilege against self-incrimination.
- Explain how the terms testimony and compelled are
defined for purposes of the Fifth Amendment. Then describe in what
situations a witness can be compelled to provide testimony that concerns
his or her own criminal activity. Cite a real case that was in the
news, if possible, where a person was compelled to testify
- Compare and contrast the distinctions between appearance evidence and bodily evidence,
and give specific examples of each. Then explain what range of police
procedures are involved in each type of evidence, and whether you think
they are sound.
- Fourth Amendment requirements for highly intrusive bodily searches
(i.e., searches that penetrate the body surface, result in extraction of
bodily tissues or fluids, or involve significant pain, physical
discomfort, or humiliation) are including when a search warrant is
required and when it is excused by exigent circumstances. Explain your
understanding of these circumstances and how you would react to a highly
intrusive bodily search if you believed yourself to be innocent of a
police accusation. Also include how you would change the requirements
for such searches, if given the opportunity.
