Sup I'm Clarence and I'm going to steal this money and these drinks because i can!
Gideon v. Wainwright 1963
Sorry but since you can afford a lawyer you can't get one so defend yourself
Clarence has just realized that his 6th Amendment rights were violated and he has the right to a lawyer. Clarence is excited and petitioned to take his case to the Supreme Court

At least one of us has a chance of getting out. All i get to do is tally
We have a good case we can win this
*Gideon is crying tears of joy*
We have made a choice. In the case Gideon v. Wainwright Gideon wins
Clarence stole $5 and some drinks at a pool hall. He was arrested and was sent to court to be tried in front of a jury. While in jail he petitioned to the Supreme Court because his 6th amendment rights were violated. The Supreme Court took his case and his side. The 6th Amendment states that everyone has the right to a lawyer. Clarence was sent to a lower court and had a fair trial.
