I went to Jury selection last week. There were three trials; Second degree murder (2 week trial) , and two sexual assault trials (both 1 week trials).
The court only used your numbers on your letter , unless nobody answered.Then they used your name. The whole event lasted about 3 hours.
There were over 300 potential jurors present.I took a book , but there so many numbers being called, I couldn't read. I was quite amazed how many people were excused and "challenged" by the lawyers.
Picking jurors for the last trial took the longest. One of the lawyers was challenging almost everyone.they went through 36 people just to pick the last alternate juror! At the end there was an audible sigh ,and some people clapped !
My number was called , but I was challenged.At least I got to stretch my legs.
