Jury Appreciation

While many people joke about avoiding it, jury duty is actually a huge responsibility, a privilege and a right.

As part of Juror Appreciation Week, which began Monday, those who have served on juries were honored.

Last year there were 112 jury trials in Winnebago County and more than 4,300 people were directed to the courtroom for juror selection.

Chief Judge Kathryn Zenoff says she is grateful for their service.
