You are not required to claim an exemption even though one might apply to you. If you would like to serve even though you are eligible for an exemption then we certainly appreciate you choosing to do so. The exemptions regarding grand jury are found under Article 1925, Texas Code of Criminal Procedure. You may claim an exemption from grand jury service if:
- You are over 70 years of age.
- You are responsible for the care of a child younger than 18 years.
- You are a student at a public or private high school.
- You are enrolled and in actual attendance at an institution of higher education.
The court also may determine if a person has a reasonable excuse from service other than those listed.
