The Sixth Amendment guarantees the rights of criminal defendants, including the right to a public trial without unnecessary delay, the right 
to a lawyer, the right to an impartial jury, and the right to know who your accusers are and the nature of the charges and evidence against you.

 

It has been most visibly tested in a series of cases involving terrorism, but much more often figures in cases that involve (for example) jury selection or the protection of witnesses, including victims of sex crimes as well as witnesses in need of protection from retaliation.
