Jury Service is an essential element of our judicial system. Trial by a jury is provided as a constitutional right. Serving on a jury is one of the highest privileges and responsibilities of citizenship for your community and your Country.
Please note that we are committed to the safety and well-being of our jurors. We are closely following and reinforcing the guidelines from the Idaho Supreme Court, the CDC and local health authorities. We are taking precautionary measures to limit the potential spread of the virus while also ensuring that we are able to continue with essential judicial proceedings. Our jury team continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and is responding as conditions evolve.
Jurors are expected to be available from the first day to the last day of their month. Jurors may be assigned more than one time during their month of service. It is very common for the numbers to climb to Reporting Number 400 and then wrap back around to Reporting Number 1 and begin again. You should not assume that just because you have been assigned to a trial that you are finished for the month. Please contact the Jury Office if you have any questions about this to avoid a failure to appear for trial situation.
Reporting Times for Jury Service
Reporting time may vary between 7:30 am and 10:30 am depending on the court schedule and the nature of the jury trial. Though jurors typically report for trials in the morning, there are times when jurors may be asked to report in the afternoon. The court schedule is very dynamic and reporting times cannot always be determined by the time you check in on Friday evenings. The Jury Office will always instruct you to check back the evening before your trial is scheduled for further reporting information.
The Jury Office has been notified of a potential Jury Service Scam in our area. The Bonner County Jury Office would never make a threatening phone call to a juror and/or demand payment or request personal information for jury service non-compliance. The caller may even identify himself/herself as an officer you may know. We have a very small community. The Sandpoint Police Department and the Sheriff's Office would not contact you and ask you for personal information either. DO NOT GIVE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION OVER THE PHONE. If you think you have been part of a jury scam, please contact the Bonner County Sheriff's Office non-emergency dispatch number at 208-265-5525 and call the Jury Office at 208-265-1443. If your issue is not resolved, please let us know immediately.
