WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO SERVE ON A JURY?

Serving on a jury is an important civic duty because it helps ensure that our legal system is fair and just. Jurors play a critical role in the administration of justice by determining the facts of a case and applying the law as instructed by the judge. The jury system also helps protect the rights of defendants and ensures that the government must prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. Additionally, serving on a jury allows citizens to have a direct involvement in the administration of justice and promotes public trust in the legal system.

A lot of people don't like to serve on jury duty for good reasons, In Indiana the jury exemption age is 75 while the mass majority of States follow the US Courts exemption age of 70. Our state legislators in Indiana must think it's just fine for its Senior citizens to have to sit on a jury after age 70. But it's not and Indiana should align its Jury age exemptions with the majority of states.
