San Diego Superior Court has extended the deadline to apply for a spot on the 2013-2014 grand jury to Friday, Jan. 25. The grand jury investigates citizen complaints and performs its traditional function as a “watchdog” over government agencies. It does not conduct criminal investigations.
Applications are now available by telephone (619-450-7272) or in person in the jury services office at the Central (downtown) branch, and the jury lounges at the North, South and East branches of the court. Interest applicants may also download an application from the San Diego Superior Courtís website at sdcourts.ca.gov or the grand jury’s website at sdcounty.ca.gov/grandjury.
Candidates must be U.S. citizens, at least 18 years old, have sufficient knowledge of the English language and have lived in the county for one year prior to selection. All candidates will be required to pass a criminal background check.
