Jury Summons

August 15, 2022

If you have been summoned for jury duty in Perry County, you probably have a ton of questions and concerns about what to expect. First and most important, you must appear at the local courthouse in Linden on the date on the summons, to go through the selection process and possible trial. It's more than an invitation or suggestion; it is mandatory you appear unless you qualify to be excused under extraordinary circumstances. But it is rare anyone is excused.

Do not ignore a jury summons. If you want to challenge the summons, the way to do it is in the courtroom on the day you were ordered to appear. The judge will explain the duties and responsibilities of each type of jury pool selected on that date. However, if you have an emergency on the day of Jury Duty, call the Circuit Court Clerk's office directly and inform them of your situation. But the best advice anyone can give you is, avoid failing to show up since you could be fined and/or given jail time.
