Who are Holdovers?
Updated: Aug 23, 2019
Outgoing Foreperson Johnni Hansen greets incoming Foreperson Rick Buchner with a warm hug. The two holdovers, Darrel Stockton-Lewis and Randy Trotter, wait for the rest of the 2019/20 Shasta County Grand Jurors to be called.
Holdovers, jurors who have served one term and agree to be held over for a second (consecutive) term, are a vital aspect of grand juries. They bring the knowledge and experience of their first terms with them and can help guide the new jurors through training, complicated legal requirements, and the general process of investigating and reporting.
Thank you Darrel and Randy for your willingness to stay on for a second year!
