To be eligible to serve on jury duty, you must be at least 18 years of age, a citizen of the United States and a resident of the county in which you are called to serve. You must also be able to communicate in the English language. Please note: There are no longer any statutory exemptions from jury duty. Previously, physicians, dentists, attorneys, police officers, firefighters, elected officials, and people over the age of 70 were all automatically exempt from serving jury duty. THIS IS NO LONGER THE CASE. Senate Bill 69, which was enacted in 1998, removed these statutory exemptions.
