Jury Information

As a resident of Denver County, you may receive a summons for jury duty. There are two different types of juries that you may be asked to serve on: a trial jury and a grand jury.

Trial Jury Summons

The most common summons you may receive is to serve as a juror for a trial proceeding.  The trial jury consists of twelve members for a felony and six for a misdemeanor. The jury listens to the facts in criminal cases and determines whether a person accused of a crime is guilty or not guilty of the crime charged.  Jury trials take place in open court in the presence of the judge, the jury, the defendant, the attorneys for both sides, and the general public.

The jury summons itself provides all the necessary information about where and when to report for jury duty. All summonses come through the US Postal Service. You will never receive a phone call regarding a summons or a missed summons.

If you have questions about the summons, please contact the jury commissioner at 303-606-2305 or  Do not contact the Denver District Attorney’s Office as we do not have this information.

Grand Jury Summons

Denver residents may also receive a summons for a grand jury.

A summons for grand jury has requirements that must be completed upon receipt of the summons, whether or not you believe you should serve.  The summons directs you to complete and return a grand juror questionnaire within ten days after receipt of the summons.

Grand juries consist of twelve members and ordinarily meet once every two weeks and serve for a period of twelve months. Grand jury service may be extended for a period not to exceed eighteen months in total.

A grand jury has the responsibility to investigate and consider the evidence presented to determine whether probable cause exists to return an indictment against a person.  An indictment is the grand jury’s formal written accusation charging the accused person or persons with one or more crimes.  When an indictment is returned against an accused person, that person then becomes a defendant and will be given the opportunity to plead guilty or not guilty to the indictment.  If a plea of "not guilty" is entered, the defendant will then be required to stand trial in open court, either before a trial jury or before the court.  In short, the grand jury determines whether a person should be formally charged with a crime by indictment and thereby brought to trial.

If you have questions concerning your grand jury service, you may contact the Denver District Attorney’s Office at 720-913-9015 or
