Court extends grand jury application deadline

January 10, 2012

The Orange County Superior Court has extended the deadline for those interested in applying to sit on the grand jury for the 2012-13 term.

Serving on the grand jury is a full-time position for one year beginning in July, and jurors will investigate the affairs of local governments, weigh whether criminal charges should be pressed against a possible defendant, weigh allegations of misconduct of elected officials, and review letters and complaints from Orange County residents.

The 19-member grand jury has 11 alternates. Jurors are paid $50 daily, capped at $250 each week. Previously, the grand jury has focused on planning for statewide water shortages, the conditions and management of Orange County jails, and child-abuse cases.
