Jury selection typically lasts a full business day (8:00 am – 5:00 pm). Please plan to be at the courthouse for the full day with a possible mid-day break for lunch. You may want to bring snacks and/or money for any breaks. If you are selected for a trial, you will likely be required to return for any additional days the trial requires. If you are not selected, your service will be concluded.
If selected for a trial, most trials last one additional day after selection. Some trials, however, may last multiple days. Please plan to be at the courthouse for the full day for trials. Lunch will be provided for jurors serving on trials, but you are welcome to bring any additional snacks with you. Occasionally, the trial or jury deliberations may run late, and jurors could stay at the courthouse past normal business hours and into the evening/night. This does not always happen, but please know it is a possibility.
Twice a year jurors are selected to serve on the grand jury which will require a longer commitment.
