Your Rights


You have certain rights guaranteed by both the United States Constitution and The Kansas Bill of Rights.

They include:

  • The Fourth Amendment   includes the right against unreasonable search.
  • The Fifth Amendment protects you from testifying against yourself, and insures you due process under the law.
  • The Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution insures your right to a speedy trial, an impartial jury and the right for you to have an attorney, among other rights.

The Kansas Bill of Rights also guarantees protections for defendants in criminal trials.

Contact the Law Office of Matthew R. Williams to explore your legal options before you enter a plea.
