Jury Duty

Message from Presiding Judge Skupin

Jurors are the heart of the judicial system in the United States. In all serious criminal cases, defendants are tried by a jury representative of the defendant’s community. All U.S. citizens are qualified for jury service if they are at least 18 years old, are residents of the jurisdiction in which they have been summoned to serve, have had their civil rights restored if previously convicted of a felony, and have not been determined by a court to be mentally incompetent or insane. Your participation as a juror is critical to ensuring all Arizonans a constitutional right to be trial by jury. On behalf of Chandler Municipal Court, I thank you for your time and service as a juror in our justice system.

Reporting Instructions
