SENATE BILL 310 – Jury Service (Felony Convictions)
An amendment to the Code of Civil Procedure, Section 203 will be in effect January 1, 2020. The amendment is to the prohibition relative to persons who have been convicted of a felony from being eligible and qualified to be a prospective trial juror. Instead, the new law now makes persons previously convicted of a felony now eligible and qualified, unless they are incarcerated in any prison or jail, or persons who have been convicted of a felony and are currently on parole, post release community supervision, felony probation, or mandated supervision for the conviction of a felony, and persons who are currently required to register as a sex offender based on a felony conviction.  For more information... | See Full Senate Bill  >>
