Since you are probably wondering what your jury service involves, below are answers to the most commonly asked questions.  


WARNING! Jury Scams 
                

Scammers are calling and writing people and saying they missed jury duty. They are not court staff or from the sheriff’s office -- they are trying to steal your money or commit identity theft. They ask for money or personal information like Social Security numbers, birth dates, or bank account information. They may threaten you, say that there is a warrant for your arrest or say that you owe a court fine. Stop right there. Put away your wallet. Hang up the phone, ignore the email.
Court staff will never ask potential jurors for money or confidential information over the phone, email, or mail. Do not give money or information to these people. Just hang up or ignore the message. Anyone who responded to these scams should report the incident to the police. Jury duty is a vital civic responsibility and should be taken seriously by everyone. These scams are not part of jury duty.
