YOUR VALUABLE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL
The right to a trial by jury is a valuable Constitutional right which allows citizens to decide your case in open court. In a misdemeanor case, all six citizens must unanimously agree on your guilt beyond any reasonable doubt. In a felony case, you are entitled to twelve citizens to serve on the jury.
