U.S. Supreme Court

Crist v. Bretz, 437 U.S. 28 (1978)

Crist v. Bretz

No. 76-1200

Argued November 1, 1977

Reargued March 22, 1978

Decided June 14, 1978

437 U.S. 28

Syllabus

The federal rule that jeopardy attaches in a jury trial when the jury is empaneled and sworn, a rule that reflects and protects the defendant's interest in retaining a chosen jury, is an integral part of the Fifth Amendment guarantee against double jeopardy made applicable to the States by the Fourteenth Amendment. Hence, a Montana statute providing that jeopardy does not attach until the first witness is sworn cannot constitutionally be applied in a jury trial. Pp. 437 U. S. 32-38.

546 F. d 1336, affirmed.
