That sounds exciting to me!  Don’t be nervous.  Usually, you hear evidence from a prosecutor and decide whether or not to issue an indictment for someone. I’ve never done it, though.

I’ve only been summoned for Petit Jury. I would much rather do a Grand Jury trial!! That’s so cool! Do you have to go through selecion like on the Petit, or are you automatically assigned to a case?

I think grand jury is only for big cases.  Basically, you determine if there is enough evidence to say if there is a crime, you don’t get to convinct anyone though.  Sounds exciting!  I went to jury duty once and just sat there for half a day until I was dismissed because the case was dismissed.

As PP have said, grand juries just decide whether there is enough evidence to indict someone of a crime–usually felonies, but misdemeanors can go in front of grand juries too sometimes (depending on the state you’re in).  So there’s no “guilty or not guilty” in the grand jury job.
