  • Gideon was accused of robbery and arrested a few days later in 1961 at a pool house in Panama City, Florida.
  • Gideon, put your hands up!!!
  • Could I have a court-appointed lawyer?!?
  • Absolutely NOT!!!
  • Because Gideon was refused a lawyer, he wasn't able to defend himself, and was found guilty and sentenced to five years in prison.
  • Five years as your conviction charge!
  • GUILTY!!!!????
  • After reviewing multiple sources in prison, Gideon began to petition to Florida's Supreme Court, and eventually the U.S. Supreme Court, declaring that his conviction was unconstitutional.
  • What about the Bill of Rights? It makes sure that the principles our country was founded on are preserved!
  • The Supreme Court's unanimous decision was 9-0, which favored Gideon's case.
  • On the date of * *, 1963, the Supreme Court hereby, unanimously, rules all convicted must be allowed a lawyer, court-appointed or not! This very order is based on rules set forth through the 6th Amendment! 
  • Through the Gideon VS. Wainwright Supreme Court Case, all who have ever been convicted of something are always guaranteed a lawyer, no matter their situation. This ensures that everyone's inalienable rights are protected; justice for all.
