Jury commission

Jury Commission members (from left) Deborah Allison, Bill Crawford and Norma Clayton were sworn in on Oct. 21. Every county in the state has a jury commission composed of three members. Allison was appointed by the senior resident Superior Court Judge, Crawford was appointed by the Clerk of Court and Clayton was appointed by the board of county commissioners. Each appointee serves for a term of two years. It is the responsibility of the jury commissioners to prepare the master list of county residents who are eligible to serve as jurors.
