Notice to Prospective Jurors

Dear Prospective Juror:

Thank you for your service. We know your time is valuable and your contribution to the administration of justice in Oklahoma is greatly appreciated. Security measures are in effect in the Oklahoma County Courthouse. Every effort will be made to expedite jurors' passage through security. You can help by not carrying certain items to the courthouse. Prohibited items include weapons of any kind; knives of any size; chemical sprays; laser pointers; firearms and ammunition. Security Personnel may also prohibit possession of any other items or materials deemed dangerous or otherwise inappropriate. The Jury Assembly Room opens at 7:30 A.M.

In the event you believe you have compelling reasons that justify your being excused from jury duty, you shall appear at the County Office Annex Building, at 3 p.m. on the Friday immediately before the Monday on which your jury duty is scheduled to begin. At that time, the Chief Judge will hear your reasons and decide if you will be excused. Bring any papers supporting your excuse with you. Requests for excuse will not be considered at any other time. However, if you are 70 years of age or more and wish to be excused from jury service, you may be excused, by state law, by telephoning the Jury Clerk at 405-713-1102, prior to the reporting time to assert your exemption.

Appropriate Court attire is required. Jurors should dress comfortably and in good taste, keeping in mind the dignity of the courtroom and the seriousness of the matters to be decided. Shorts, tank tops or thong sandals are not permitted. The normal period of jury service is usually 2 to 3 days, but may last longer. Plan to be there at least Monday and Tuesday. Once again, thank you for your service as a juror.
