Jury Duty

The jury panel is selected by a lot from all residents in the county who hold a valid driver's license or Kansas ID card.

Jurors perform a vital role in the American system of justice. The protection of our rights and liberties is achieved largely through the teamwork of judge and jury who, working together in a common effort, put into practice the principles of our great heritage of freedom. The judge determines the law to be applied in the case while the jury decides the facts. Thus, in a very important way, jurors become a part of the court itself.

Once you have appeared for jury duty, you have fulfilled your jury duty requirement for one year. If you are summoned for jury duty and do not appear, you may be summoned into Court at a later date and fined up to $100 per day for every day of jury duty that you missed.
