Am I eligible to be a juror?
Jurors must:
  • Be a citizen of the United States and a resident of the City of Kennedale in order to serve as a juror for Municipal Court;
  • Be at least 18 years of age;
  • Reside in the county of jury service/
  • Be able to read and write; and
  • Be of sound mind

You cannot serve on a jury if:
  • You have been convicted of a felony or any type of theft (unless rights have been restored);
  • You are now on probation or deferred adjudication for a felony or for any type of theft; or
  • You are now under indictment for a felony or are now under criminal charges for any type of theft.

If you are in doubt, or think you may not be qualified to serve on a jury for one of the above or any other reasons, please notify the judge in writing prior to your scheduled juror appearance. If we have not received anything in writing, you will be required to appear in person to personally notify the judge as to why you feel you are ineligible.
