RULE 8 REQUIREMENTS FOR PAYMENT OF JURY FEES UPON CANCELLATION OF JURY TRIAL If a defendant who has been charged with a criminal violation has requested a jury trial, and if that jury panel is summoned and the Court has incurred the expense, or will incur the expense because the jury has been brought in, and if the defendant waives his or her right to a jury trial less than 48 hours prior to the date for which the jury trial had been scheduled, or otherwise causes the excusal or release of the jury from hearing the case, the defendant shall be responsible for payment to the Court of the amount of the actual costs incurred by the Court for jury fee payments and mileage reimbursements. Provided, however, that the Judge/Commissioner presiding over the case specifically determines that payment of those fees and costs shall be waived for good cause shown. Any such jury fee costs imposed by the Court for payment and reimbursement of jury fees and mileage reimbursement shall be paid by the defendant as a condition of suspended sentence, if any, or as otherwise directed by the Court.
