Often referred to as "trial by jury," this is a trial in which a jury hears the facts of a case and renders a verdict based on the facts presented to them. Note: The U.S. and Indiana Constitutions are not identical on this issue. The Indiana Constitution (Article 1 section 19) provides for a trial by jury in all criminal cases. Under the U.S. Constitution, however, "The right to a jury trial is establishedâ€¦but it is not an absolute right. The Supreme Court has stated that petty crimes (as those carrying a sentence of up to 6 months) do not require trial by jury. The right to a jury trial in a criminal case may be waived by the ``express and intelligent consent'' of the defendantâ€¦There is no right to a jury trial in equity cases. When a civil case involves both legal and equitable issues or procedure, either party may demand a jury trial (and failure to do so is taken as a waiver), but the judge may find that there is no right to jury trial because of equitable issues or claims."
