Jurors are paid for their service. Each juror receives $6 for the first day of appearance and $40 for the second and any subsequent days of appearance. Jurors may donate their pay to a number of organizations that have been approved by the Denton County Commissioners Court. Total donations to those organizations averages about $75,000 annually.
Payment is processed at the end of jury service, and a check is mailed to each juror within two to three weeks of their service.
