Jury Duty Information

Jury Duty

Your job as a juror is to listen to all the evidence presented at trial and then decide the facts to decide what really happened. The judge's job is to decide the law and make decisions on legal issues that come up during the trial. All must do their job well if our system of trial by jury is to work.

You do not need special knowledge or ability to do your job. It is enough that you keep an open mind, use common sense, concentrate on the evidence presented, and be fair and honest in your deliberations.

Remember: Do not be influenced by sympathy or prejudice. It is vital that you be impartial with regard to all testimony and ideas presented at the trial.

We hope you find your experience as a juror interesting and satisfying. Thanks for your willingness to serve!
