Tennessee Code 22-1-101 provides the basic qualifications for prospective jurors as follows:
Every person of the age of eighteen (18) years, being a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the state of Tennessee, and of the county in which he or she may be summoned for jury service for a period of twelve (12) months next preceding the date of such summons, is legally qualified to act as a grand or petit juror, if not otherwise incompetent under the express provisions of the Code.
The prospective juror list is compiled from driver’s license listings, voter registration rolls, and tax rolls.
Prosecution closing argument. The prosecution makes its closing argument, summarizing the evidence as the prosecution sees it, and explaining why the jury should render a guilty verdict.
Defense closing argument. The defense makes its closing argument, summarizing the evidence as the defense sees it, and explaining why the jury should render a not guilty verdict -- or at least a guilty verdict on a lesser charge.
The jury retires, elects a foreperson, deliberates, and attempts to arrive at a verdict.
In federal (and most state) criminal trials, a jury verdict must be unanimous. A few states accept less than unanimous verdicts.
The Supreme Court has approved non-unanimous verdicts by twelve-person juries, but has held that a conviction by a nonunanimous six-person jury in a state trial for a nonpetty offense violates the Sixth Amendment.
