Jury Duty Scam

Identity thieves are using a "Jury Duty Scam" to obtain personal information from citizens throughout Central Florida. The scammers are telephoning individuals identifying themselves as local court employees and advising these individuals they failed to report for jury duty. In many cases the scammer indicates a warrant has been issued for their arrest and requests the individual to provide confidential information such as Social Security number and date of birth for "verification" purposes.

Clerk's Office employees within the Jury Management division never make such calls. In fact, initial notifications as well as follow-up notices are processed through the US Postal Service. Clerk's Office employees will, however, respond by telephone to a prospective juror's inquiry if requested.

Please avoid becoming a victim of this type of identity theft scam by simply refusing to provide the information requested by the caller.

Jury Duty

Jury pools are drawn at random, as of January 1, 1998, from the rolls of the State of Florida’s Division of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles from citizens who possess a driver's license or identification card. Jury trials are currently held in DeLand and Daytona Beach. The specific location where you are to report is included in your jury summons. If you fail to report for jury duty and have not obtained an excuse, you may be found in contempt of court. The presiding judge will make that decision. It is in your best interest to make every effort to appear or to request an excusal.

In order to eligible for jury duty you must:

  • Be an American citizen
  • Have legal residence within the county
  • Be at least 18 years of age

The right to a trial by jury is one of the principles guaranteed by the Constitution. It is the duty of every citizen to serve when called to do so.

Request for Accommodations by Persons with Disabilities

If you are a person with a disability who needs an accommodation in order to participate in this proceeding, you are entitled, at no cost to you, to the provision of certain assistance.

Terms of Service

If you are scheduled to report on Monday, it is possible your term of service will be for Monday only, or, if you are selected as a juror, for the completion of one trial. A person who has reported as a prospective juror is exempt from jury service for one year from the last day of service.


Jurors who are regularly employed and who continue to receive regular wages while serving as a juror, will not be compensated for the first three days of jury service. Jurors who are not regularly employed or who do not continue to receive regular wages while serving as a juror, are entitled to receive $15 per day for the first three days of jury service. Regular employment includes full-time employment and part-time, temporary, and casual employment as long as the employment hours of a juror can be reasonably determined by a schedule or by custom and practice established during a three-month period preceding the term of service as a juror. Each juror who serves more than three days will be paid by the state for the fourth day of service and each day thereafter at the rate of $30 per day.

It is very important that prior to reporting you ascertain the policy of your employer concerning payment of wages while on jury duty.
