Why should anyone serve on a jury?
The right to trial by a jury of our fellow citizens is one of our most important rights and is guaranteed by the Washington State and United States constitution. By serving on a jury, citizens are helping to preserve this freedom. A juror's responsibility is to listen to all the evidence presented at the trial and to decide the facts - - that is, make decisions on legal issues that come up during the trial.
