The rights defendants have during a criminal trial.
For your first post, address the following questions.
1.)Explain how the wording in the Sixth Amendment that a criminal trial shall be held “wherein the crime shall
have been committed” relates to venue and protects the rights of a suspect during a criminal trial.
2.)Conduct research to locate a MINNESOTA criminal case where one of the parties requested a change of
venue, then identify the arguments supporting the request, and explain the court’s ruling on the request.
3.)Discuss whether you agree or disagree with the judge’s decision on the request to change venue and
describe whether a change of venue might have had an impact on the outcome of the case.
