Stephnie Menke, Potter County District Clerk
Welcomes you to the
Potter County iJuror Website
Trial by jury is a fundamental principle of our system of justice, and a citizen's right to a trial by jury can be traced back to both the United States Constitution and the Texas Declaration of Independence. Although the right to a jury trial is considered a fundamental safeguard of each American's constitutional liberties, the concept of a jury trial is hardly new, and dates back to medieval England.
Your jury summons puts you in the center of this most basic right of all Americans. The United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Texas guarantee a right to trial by jury for anyone accused of a crime, regardless of his or her race, religion, gender, national origin or economic status. Any time the facts of a civil or criminal case are in dispute, the parties have a right to have their case heard by a jury of fair and impartial citizens who will make decisions without bias or prejudice.
