IBA: Criminal Jury Questionnaire Under Review

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Those practicing in the Marion County Criminal Courts have long sought revision to the jury questionnaire to improve the effectiveness of juror selection and to improve the efficiency of the process. A movement is now underway to undertake those needed revisions. 

A committee was formed to revamp the questionnaire and they began work earlier this summer. The process began with a comment sheet distributed at the Indybar’s Bench Bar Conference in June and that same committee recently appealed to Indybar’s Criminal Justice Section for additional thoughts.

“We thank everyone who takes the time to help make our jury selection process a better one,” said Jenny Lukemeyer of Voyles Zahn Paul Hogan & Merriman and chair of the Indybar Criminal Justice Section.

All legal professionals are encouraged to contact members of the committee with any input. The committee members are: Eric Schmadeke, MCPO, 251 E. Ohio Street, Suite 160, 46204. 327-6944. eschmade@indy.gov; Jeff Preston, MCPO, 251 E. Ohio Street, Suite 160, 46204. 327-5694. jpreston@indy.gov; Marie Castetter, MCPO, 251 E. Ohio Street, Suite 160, 46204. 327-6955. mcastett@indy.gov; Jennifer Lukemeyer, Voyles, Zahn, Paul, Hogan & Merriman, 141 E. Washington Street, Suite 300, 46204. 632-4463. jlukemeyer@vzphmlaw.com; James Bell, Bingham McHale, 2700 Market Tower, 10 West Market Street, 46204. 968-5524. JBell@binghammchale.com; Laura Pitts, MCPD, 151 N. Delaware St., Suite 151, 46204. 327-5811.lmpitts@indy.gov; and Ben Jaffe, MCPD, 151 N. Delaware St., Suite 151, 46204. 327-4100. bjaffe@indy.gov.

The committee’s goal is to develop a two-sided questionnaire, one for civil and one for criminal jurors. A separate committee is working on the civil jury questionnaire for revision as well.

The criminal jury questionnaire may be found online at www.indybar.org or email mprice@indybar.org for a copy.•
