IMPORTANT MESSAGE FORM THE JURY COMMISSIONER

SENATE BILL 310 – JURY SERVICE (FELONY CONVICTIONS)
An amendment to the Code of Civil Procedure, Section 203 will be in effect January 1, 2020. The amendment is to the prohibition relative to persons who have been convicted of a felony from being eligible and qualified to be a prospective trial juror. Instead, the new law now makes persons previously convicted of a felony now eligible and qualified, unless they are incarcerated in any prison or jail, or persons who have been convicted of a felony and are currently on parole, post release community supervision, felony probation, or mandated supervision for the conviction of a felony, and persons who are currently required to register as a sex offender based on a felony conviction (Penal Code 290).


If you are summoned to appear for jury service at the Courthouse, check the date and time printed on the front of your summons.

Checking Your Status:

The weekend before or the night before you are to appear, call the jury service phone number and a recorded message will confirm the date, time, and place of appearance or it will tell you if your service is cancelled.

If your service is cancelled, you do not have to appear.
