Can one volunteer to be on the jury?

Stuff reports:

Serial sex offender Stewart Murray Wilson has made an 11th-hour decision to elect trial by jury over accusations he breached prison release conditions, promoting allegations he is “abusing” the court process.

He wants a trial by jury? I don’t think they’ll have a problem finding people to go on that jury.

The 66-year-old appeared in the Whanganui District Court this morning when he was going to defend two charges brought by the Department of Corrections.

Almost worth moving to Whanganui just so you can qualify to sit 🙂
