Abstract

This thesis examines jury costs—extra court costs charged to convicted defendants if they exercised their constitutional right to a jury trial. Constitutional arguments against charging these fees are outlined in the broader context of indigency and criminal justice reform. Practical solutions to end the charging of jury fees are offered.
