Jury Duty Information
The Grand Jury consists of sixteen (16) members and meets the 2nd Monday of each term of court (January, April and September). The main duty of the Grand Jury is to hear criminal cases presented by the Prosecuting Attorney and decide if there is probable cause. It is not their duty however, to decide the guilt or innocence of an individual. Although grand jurors serve the entire term of court, they normally only appear in court the one day for which they are actually summoned.
Petit Jurors are required to call the juror message line the night before any scheduled appearance. The number is printed on the juror summons and it is recommended that jurors call before retiring for the night. A recorded message will confirm the need to appear for jury duty, notice jurors of cancellation or change of reporting date. Jurors will not be paid for appearing when they have been notified by the recording not to report. If the Circuit Clerk is notified of any change within sufficient time to telephone jurors, office staff will try to call you.
The Circuit Clerk is responsible for the administration and management of the Jury System and provides jury panels for Circuit, Magistrate and Municipal Courts. The Clerk creates the master list of prospective jurors, randomly selects panels for attendance, qualifies and summons the jurors and monitors attendance and mileage for reimbursement purposes.
