Unlike the Petit Jury, a Grand Jury hears evidence about crimes and decides whether or not a person should be “indicted” and tried for committing a crime. Also unlike the Petit Jury, the Grand Jury does not decide guilt or innocence. If you are summoned to court to be selected for service on a Grand Jury, you will probably serve for a longer period of time than if you serve on a Petit Jury.

Term of service is two months
