What type of cases may require juries?
There are two types of cases, criminal (felony and misdemeanor) and civil.
A criminal case results when a person is accused of committing a crime. Jurors must decide whether the person charged is guilty or not guilty. The accused person is presumed innocent, and the state must prove guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt”
A civil case results from a disagreement or dispute between two or more parties. Jurors must answer questions of disputed facts based upon the testimony and evidence admitted by the judge. Click here.
