Most jurors will be selected to serve on a “Petit Jury”, one that is selected to hear and decide a particular case. If the case is a criminal trial involving a felony (a more serious type of crime), law requires 12 jurors. In a civil case, only eight jurors are selected. In municipal and county courts, where misdemeanors (a less-serious level of crime) are brought to trial, juries consist of eight persons. If a trial is expected to last more than a day, some judges have alternate jurors selected in case something should happen to one or more of the original jury panel.

The Courthouse is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Term of service: One week or one trial whichever is longer
