Dear Juror:

Your juror registration form has been reviewed and you are now qualified to serve as a juror and have been assigned as designated above for jury selection in a particular trial. Please report promptly as directed.

Please note the following:

YOUR LEGAL DUTY: You MUST report as directed. Failure to report may result in a special appearance before a judge and a fine of up to $1000

DO NOT SCHEDULE ANY ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES STARTING ON OR AFTER THE ANTICIPATED REPORT DATE YOU WERE ASSIGNED. This is to ensure your availability for the anticipated trial period. The conflict dates you submitted on your reporting form were accommodated, and this trial assignment should not interfere with those activities. We recommend you write your jury assignment on your personal calendar as a reminder.

WE ARE UNABLE TO CHANGE OR RESCHEDULE THIS ASSIGNMENT. You are expected to report as directed above. If a health emergency arises that prevents you from reporting, please call 974-4879 as soon as possible.

UNFORTUNATELY, THERE IS NO RESERVE PARKING FOR JURORS. Public parking is available between 6th and 8th Streets underneath IH35. You are welcome to make other transportation arrangements as best fits your needs. Allow sufficient travel time. Coming from North IH35, take the 3rd-8th Street exit. Coming from South IH35, take the 6th-12th Street exit. Coming from MoPac, take the 5th Street exit and travel east toward 8th and IH35.

We encourage you to use Capital Metro for transportation. You can contact Capital Metro at 474-1200 or www.capmetro.org for more information. You may also find the Google Transit search engine useful.

EXPECT TO GO THROUGH SECURITY SCREENING when you report. The security system is similar to that found at an airport. We recommend you leave behind pocketknives or any other sharp or pointed objects.

YOU HAVE NOT YET BEEN SELECTED TO BE A JUROR. You are reporting for jury selection. If you are concerned that serving as a juror will cause you economic hardship, you will have the opportunity to bring this issue to the attention of the judge.

Most importantly, THANK YOU for performing this essential service for our community.

Velva L. Price,
District Clerk
