Large Jury Pool Called in Tulsa County
Hundreds report for jury duty at the Tulsa County Courthouse. It’s one of the largest jury pools for Tulsa County ever. The line outside the jury assembly room is backed up all the way to the entrance doors in the Courthouse basement as those summoned appear for the current session. There’s a docket of more than a thousand cases awaiting action, including some high profile cases. Undersheriff Tim Albin says judges and court personnel want to make sure they have enough potential jurors to clear as many cases as possible.
The jury assembly room was recently enlarged and updated, but it’s still more than a full house as the current session begins.
