The First Amendment states,
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The First Amendment can be a defense to certain crimes. A person can also sue the government if it infringes on his or her First Amendment rights.
If you or a loved one has been charged a crime involving speech, or if your First Amendment rights have been infringed upon by the government, call the Radical Law Center today.
