Summary: A person who has been incarcerated and released has served their debt to society, and should be granted equal rights to any citizen. Banning formerly incarcerated people from serving on juries disenfranchises them, while also disproportionately removes people of color — who are disproportionately incarcerated due to our flawed justice system — from the jury pool, perpetuating biased legal outcomes. SB310 reinstates the right of most formerly incarcerated people to serve on juries. This bill passed and was signed into law.
