In New York City, The Sanders Firm, P.C., which focuses on all forms of civil rights complaints, is equipped to handle cases involving selective prosecution. In essence the First Amendment offers those in the United States various freedoms, including assembly, speech, and religion, and the Fourth Amendment provides protection in the area of probable cause, protecting citizens from false or unfounded charges, arrest, and seizure of property. The Fifth Amendment promises due process under the law, meaning when someone is charged with a crime they must go through a procedure that is fair and preserves their rights.
In other words, we cannot be charged with a crime when merely exercising our rights granted in the First Amendment, even if people oppose our position, and to be charged with a crime there must be some sort of evidence against us as noted in the Fourth Amendment. When people are prosecuted as criminals based on unacceptable standards such as religion, race, or profiling, this is known as selective prosecution. This type of targeting directly violates the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment.
