Modern juries tend to be found in courts to ascertain the guilt, or lack thereof, in a crime. The modern criminal court jury arrangement has evolved out of the medieval juries in England. Members were supposed to inform themselves of crimes and then of the details of the crimes. The majority required for a verdict varies. A grand jury is traditionally larger than and distinguishable from the petit jury used during a trial, usually with 12 jurors.
It is not required that a suspect be notified of grand jury proceedings. United States federal government and legislative state auditors in many U. A coroner’s jury is generally a body that a coroner can convene on an optional basis in order to increase public confidence in the coroner’s finding where there might otherwise be a controversy. In practice, coroner’s juries are most often convened in order to avoid the appearance of impropriety by one governmental official in the criminal justice system toward another if no charges are filed against the person causing the death, when a governmental party such as a law enforcement officer is involved in the death. Serving on a jury is normally compulsory for individuals who are qualified for jury service. A jury is intended to be an impartial panel capable of reaching a verdict.
Procedures and requirements may include a fluent understanding of the language and the opportunity to test jurors’ neutrality or otherwise exclude jurors who are perceived as likely to be less than neutral or partial to one side. Juries are initially chosen randomly, usually from the eligible population of adult citizens residing in the court’s jurisdictional area. A head juror is called the “foreperson”, “foreman” or “presiding juror”. The foreperson may be chosen before the trial begins, or at the beginning of the jury’s deliberations. The foreperson may be selected by the judge or by vote of the jurors, depending on the jurisdiction. Since there is always the possibility of jurors not completing a trial for health or other reasons, often one or more alternate jurors are selected. Alternates are present for the entire trial but do not take part in deliberating the case and deciding the verdict unless one or more of the impaneled jurors are removed from the jury.
In Connecticut, alternate jurors are dismissed before the panel of sworn jurors begin deliberation. 54-82h do not allow alternate jurors to be segregated from the regular sworn jurors. In civil cases in Connecticut, C. This differs from the power given to the court in criminal trials under C. 54-82h, permitting the court not to dismiss the alternate jurors, and to have the regular jury panel begin deliberations.
When an insufficient number of summoned jurors appear in court to handle a matter, the law in many jurisdictions empowers the jury commissioner or other official convening the jury to involuntarily impress bystanders in the vicinity of the place where the jury is to be convened to serve on the jury. In Anglo-Saxon England, juries investigated crimes. The use of ordinary members of the community to consider crimes was unusual in ancient cultures, but was nonetheless also found in ancient Greece. Called juries of presentment, these men testified under oath to crimes committed in their neighbourhood.
1166 caused these juries to be adopted systematically throughout the country. The jury in this period was “self-informing,” meaning it heard very little evidence or testimony in court. Instead, jurors were recruited from the locality of the dispute and were expected to know the facts before coming to court. The source of juror knowledge could include first-hand knowledge, investigation, and less reliable sources such as rumour and hearsay. Thus, Makdisi claims, English law became influenced by the Islamic law used in Sicily under the Fatimids, including the use of the twelve man jury.
Makdisi suggests that Henry II’s laws would have been influenced through people such as Thomas Brown, a member of Henry’s government who had previously served in the Sicilian government. Sheriffs prepared cases for trial and found jurors with relevant knowledge and testimony. Jurors ‘found’ a verdict by witnessing as to fact, even assessing and applying information from their own and community memory—little was written at this time and what was, such as deeds and writs, were subject to fraud. Royal justices supervised trials, answered questions as to law, and announced the court’s decision which was then subject to appeal. Sheriffs executed the decision of the court. These procedures enabled Henry II to delegate authority without endowing his subordinates with too much power.
