The [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution"]Fifth Amendment [/ame]protects the rights of an accused as well as the witnesses. To invoke the fifth is to avoid self incrimination. It implies that to answer the question the witness must say something that might subject themselves to criminal prosecution. It means that they can't make a person testify as to what he may or may not have done. Since it is widely believed that CA obstructed justice can she just not answer anything and let Judge Perry decide about the 911 call without her input? If she refuses to answer anything she won't make Casey mad! lol lol--I know I shouldn't be laughing..but my real question is CAN CA consider the fifth amendment (legally) under these circumstances? Can the Judge require her to answer if she invokes the fifth? I elected to ask this question in a thread of it's own, it's worthy of discussion but if it is more appropriate in a different place, of course, I have no objection to moving it. Thanks!
