    Page 1 of 1 29A.080 Disqualifications for jury service -- Permanent exemption. (1) The Chief Circuit Judge or one (1) or more judges of the court, the court's clerk, a deputy clerk, the court's administrator, or a deputy court administrator so designated
    by the Chief Circuit Judge shall determine on the basis of the information provided
    on the juror qualification form whether the prospective juror is disqualified for jury
    service for any of the reasons listed in subsection (2) of this section. This
    determination shall be entered in the space provided on the juror qualification form.
    The Chief Circuit Judge shall cause each disqualified juror to be immediately
    notified of the juror's disqualification. (2) A prospective juror is disqualified to serve on a jury if the juror: (a) Is under eighteen (18) years of age;
    (b) Is not a citizen of the United States;
    (c) Is not a resident of the county;
    (d) Has insufficient knowledge of the English language;
    (e) Has been previously convicted of a felony and has not been pardoned or received a restoration of civil rights by the Governor or other authorized
    person of the jurisdiction in which the person was convicted; (f) Is presently under indictment; or
    (g) Has served on a jury within the time limitations set out under KRS 29A.130. (3) The Chief Circuit Judge may grant a permanent exemption based upon an individual's request and a finding by the Chief Circuit Judge of a permanent medical
    condition rendering the individual incapable of serving. The judge granting the
    permanent exemption shall notify the requesting person and the Administrative
    Office of the Courts. Upon receiving notification of a permanent exemption the
    Administrative Office of the Courts shall remove the person's name from the master
    list. (4) There shall be no waiver of these disqualifications, except that pursuant to the Federal Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990, an individual with a disability
    shall not be disqualified solely by reason of the disability. For the purposes of this
    section, "individual with a disability" means a person with a physical or mental
    impairment that substantially limits one (1) or more of the major life activities of
    the individual, a record of the impairment, or being regarded as having the
    impairment. Effective: July 15, 2002
