Prev Article 1. - GENERAL PROVISIONSNext


43-107. Drawing of grand and petit jurors. (a) At least 30 days before service is required, the clerk of the court of the county where such court is to be held shall draw from the jury box the names of 30 persons to serve as grand jurors and the names of 24 persons to serve as petit jurors. In the event that a county has appropriate base information programmed as a part of its computer operations so that it might comply with the spirit of the jury selection laws of Kansas, the jury commissioners may by local rule provide alternate methods for securing jury panels directly from the computer without the necessity of drawing names or cards from a wheel manually.

(b) Upon receipt of a list of all remaining legally qualified grand jurors from the court pursuant to K.S.A. 22-3002, and amendments thereto, the clerk of the court of the county where such court is to be held shall draw for a second time 15 names of persons to serve as grand jurors from such list. In the event that the county in which court is to be held has an alternate method for securing jury panels directly from the computer, the clerk shall use the computer to generate 15 names of persons to serve as grand jurors from such list.
