Chapter 25 Section 1612


Packing juries; solicitation of jury service; penalties.

If a sheriff or other officer corruptly or through favor or ill will, summons a juror with the intent that such juror shall find a verdict for or against either party, or shall summon a grand juror from like motives with the intent that such grand juror shall or shall not find an indictment or presentment against any particular individual, he shall be fined not exceeding five hundred dollars, and forfeit his office and be forever disqualified from holding any office in this state. Any person who shall seek the position of juror, or who shall ask any attorney or other officer of the court or any other person or officer in any manner charged with the duty of selecting the jury, to secure or procure his selection as a juryman shall be deemed guilty of a contempt of court and be fined not exceeding twenty dollars and shall thereby be disqualified from serving as a juror for that term. Any attorney or party to a suit pending for trial at that term who shall request, or solicit the placing of any person upon a jury, or upon the jury list, shall be deemed guilty of a contempt of court and be fined not exceeding one hundred dollars, and the person so sought to be put upon the jury or jury list, shall be disqualified to serve as a juror at that term of the court.
