The Constitution for the United States of America
Bill of Rights
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
This is pretty self explanatory.
Infringing upon the Liberty of a person by imposing an excessive bail is a crime under the Common Law.
The same can be said of cruel and unusual punishments as they would cause undue humiliation and embarassment.
