Your Service to Your Country, to Arizona & the Pinal County Judicial System as a Juror
The right to “a Jury of One’s Peers” sits at the cornerstone of the American justice system. Do you know how important Jury Service is to everyone? It is the collaboration of the jury and the Judge who put our guaranteed rights under the Constitution of the United States into practice.
It is a vital duty and privilege to serve on a jury, because jurors perform a unique role in the American system of justice. The juror serves to decide the facts within the criminal and civil justice system, while the judge looks at the rule of law.
Your Participation is Extremely Important and Essential to the Process
The Clerk of the Superior Court, Rebecca Padilla, takes her duty as the Pinal County Jury Commissioner very seriously and is proud to discharge that duty. Our founding fathers knew how vitally important jury service is to our entire justice system and every defendant in a jury trial depends on the honesty and fairness of his or her peers to judge the facts of the case.
The consequences of the jury’s verdict can carry financial, long-term, and in some cases lifelong ramifications to the person facing trial. Clerk Padilla hopes that you, as a citizen and resident of Pinal County, will understand that while Jury Service can be an inconvenience to our daily routine, it is one of the highest calls to duty in our Republic. Jurors have the unparalleled reward of upholding the justice system. If you should have any questions regarding your Jury Service, please call the Jury Department at 888-431-1311.
