When is a jury trial available?

You have the right to a trial by jury. However, you must demand a jury trial at your first court appearance. You will also be required to pay a jury fee in court at the first appearance date. The jury fee is non-refundable and is in addition to any fines or assessments that may be ordered if you are found guilty.
