OUJI-CR 13-1


For those who have been summoned as jurors, I remind you that jury service is a legal obligation as well as a civic duty. Each of you is an officer of the court just as the judge, the attorney(s) representing the prosecution, and the attorney(s) representing the defense. Your office as juror is one of extreme public trust. The services you perform as juror are as important and essential to the administration of justice as those performed by the judge and the attorneys.

As prospective jurors you will take an oath to answer completely and truthfully all questions asked you by myself and the attorneys.
