You must complete the exemption form, indicating the reason(s) you wish to be excused, and return it for review by the Judge of the Xenia Municipal Court. The Court will notify you if you are excused. If you are not notified, then you should contact the Court to determine if you are required to appear for jury service. Under penalty as prescribed by law, failure to comply could result in Contempt of Court proceedings against you.
