Livingston County citizens are called upon to participate in the Court system by serving as Jurors. If you are selected for jury service, you will receive a letter and a Jury Summons. The Jury Summons is an official Court document, and you must respond to it. You could be held in criminal contempt of Court if you do not respond to the Jury Summons.
The Jury Summons will tell you when the two to three weeks of Jury Service will begin and end. During that time, there is a good chance you will not even come to Court, and that even if you are called into Court, there is a good chance that you will not sit on a jury. All who are summoned perform an important service to the community. If you are selected for a jury, the judge will let you know the estimated length of the trial and give you a chance to raise any concerns you may have.
