It is Juror Appreciation Week in Missouri and we would like to thank each of you who have been or will be an important part of the judicial system.
In honor of this week, here are some facts:
– Jurors are randomly selected from voter and driver registration in each county. It is strictly luck of the draw.
– Persons on the jury are responsible in hearing and analyzing both sides of the argument and making an informed and unbiased decision based on the evidence.
– Any person over the age of 18 may be eligible for the selection process.
– The jury selection is based on many factors in order to make sure there is a good cross section of citizens and opinions.
