You Can Volunteer For Grand Jury In California

Riverside Superior Court

It's a little tricky explaining the California grand jury system to people from just about any other state.  Because grand juries in the California go beyond criminal cases; they function like auditors, investigating and reporting on the doings of public agencies. 

And people can actually volunteer for service on the grand jury, which stays in office for a year.  Shasta Countyis recruiting for new grand jury members.  Jim Warnemuende from the Shasta County Grand Jury Association visits to talk about this special kind of jury duty.
