Fifth Amendment protects against self-incrimination

In all criminal cases in Virginia and across the country, defendants have a right against self-incrimination under the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The Fifth Amendment sets forth that the defendant in a criminal trial cannot be forced to testify. The origins of the right are rooted in a refusal by the Puritans to cooperate with English interrogators in the 1600s. Puritans who fled persecution based on religion brought the idea of a protection against self-incrimination along to America.

During that time, teens' risk for a fatal crash goes up some 15%.
