Most jurors serve on jury trials. Jury trials are held for criminal and civil cases. Most jury trials last one or two days, but occasionally take longer. The Court makes every effort to effectively use juror’s time and only call jurors to report for service when trials are scheduled to begin the following day. The term of service for Trial Jurors is one month.
Some jurors are selected to serve on a grand jury. Grand Jurors listen to evidence and testimony of witnesses presented by the District Attorney and determine whether someone should be charged with a crime. Grand Jurors serve one day per week for two months. Two groups of seven Grand Jurors are selected for each two month term. One group of Grand Jurors serves on Tuesdays, and the other group serves on Thursdays.
