The Supreme Court interpretation of the Sixth Amendment requires that trial juries in both federal and state criminal trials be selected from â€œa representative cross-section of the community.â€ It also guarantees trial by a jury of peers. That phrase does not mean that, say, a student facing criminal charges must have a jury of students, or those female defendants must have an all-female jury. Who would you prefer to have on a jury if you found yourself to be the defendant in a criminal trial? Â What potential problems exist in attempting to provide the defendant with a jury of persons exclusively similar to him/her? Support your response with examples or facts.
