Right to Assistance of Counsel.

The Sixth Amendment provides a right to counsel in criminal matters only. That right, however, does not extend to disciplinary actions and does not apply to administrative segregation based on suspected criminal activity, unless the prisoner has been charged with a crime. Courts do have discretion to provide counsel to prisoners who have established prima facie cases in civil rights actions and in parole revocation proceedings if necessary for fundamental fairness.
