The jury was formed to help decide the guilt or innocence of the accused by way of presenting information and evidence to help make the case. If you are ever called to a jury, there are some terms you may want to brush up on. The accused is the person that is accused of the crime, they are not determined to be guilty or innocent if they are accused.
