Bart -

If you mean by that "ex post facto laws", Article I Section 10 prohibits such, except that it is binding on the states, not on the national government. Article I Section 9 3, however, does impose that restriction on the national government.

If you mean by that assessing penalties that injure fundamental rights without due process of law, that would be amendments 5 and 14. The term "a priori" denotes the deductive assumption of a thing that is about to happen, rather than a thing that has happened.

Think, "Minority Report".
