  • i want a lawyer
  • I'll defend myself then
  • Clarence Earl Gideon was charged for breaking into a pool hall and steeling some beverages and five dollars in cash.
  • He did not have enough money to buy a lawyer, so he asked the court to provide him with one and they said "No".
  • Sense he did not have a lawyer he defended himself in front of the jury.
  • Innocent
  • The jury found him guilty and sent him to five years prison.
  • When in prison, he petitioned the Supreme Court telling them that they didn't provide him with a lawyer and that that was violating the 6th amendment. They gave him another trial with a lawyer and he proved his client not guilty.
  • Now a criminal in court has a right to a lawyer and states have to provide them.
