The following oath shall be administered to the jurors:

 

“Do you solemnly swear (or affirm) that you will well and truly try the issues between the State of Florida and the defendant and render a true verdict according to the law and the evidence, so help you God?”

 

If any juror affirms, the clause “so help you God” shall be omitted.

One thought on “3.360. Oath of Trial Jurors

  1. A juror receiving information from a higher power is acting in accordance with the juror oath! How does the judge discharge a juror that says he received help from a higher source (God)?
