The correct answer is the right to a speedy trial. The 6th amendment of the Constitution guarantees this right for multiple reasons. On the one hand, ensures that all individuals have the capacity for their cases to be heard relatively soon after the accussation occurred. Another reason for this amendment was to create a judicial process that is as accurate as possible. The greater the distance between the arrest and the trial can result in misinformation, especially of eye-witnesses.
