I knew someone that had a sealed juvenile conviction, and did not want to mention it in open court. You can ask to speak to the judge privately, or with both lawyers present (in chambers?).. . .Question: if you're selected as a potential juror, do you have to answer questions from the court? Could you just say that you're exercising your right to remain silent and not answering any questions? Obviously you wouldn't get chosen if you did this, but do you have the right to do so or is there a "juror exception" where the state can force you to answer questions?
It was not a random pick in Ga for a long time.Someone somewhere though you made a good choice. Grand Juries were almost always well known community members like school teachers.If you want to serve and never have, let your clerk of court know.
I've got traverse duty in June again. I'm 41 and been on the grand jury three times, served on two trials, and been called so many times I've lost count. I normally don't mind too much. It just makes me angry that lots of folks never get called but I do all the time.
Finished my service yesterday evening having served on another Jury with the same sentencing result. Superior court here pays $10/day unless you serve on a Jury, then it's bumped up to $20/day.Wow, y'all be getting rich out there. If I can remember correctly, Chatham pays $5-$10 a day.
I served on one jury a few years ago where the defendant was sentenced to life without parole. I have jury duty next week (short week because of Memorial day). First jury duty in a few years since serving on that jury, although I don't know if that's the reason it's been so long or not.
