The criminal jury trial calendar set for July 13-17 has been cancelled and jurors do not need to report for jury duty.
After reviewing the potential trial calendar, the trial week was cancelled due to an extremely small number of cases that are currently pending and will be ready for trial on the criminal trial calendar. None of the individuals who are anticipated to be on the trial calendar for July 13-17 are currently in the Lamar County Detention Center awaiting trial.
“Therefore, in the interests of judicial economy and financial costs for the court and Lamar County, the criminal jury trial week is hereby cancelled,” wrote superior court judge William A. Fears in an order issued July 1.
