Fayette County will hold an extra session this month for criminal jury trials.

Criminal jury trials typically are held only during the first week of the month. Two pools of jurors are called to serve, with the first arriving on Monday and the second on Wednesday.

Through his office, President Judge John F. Wagner Jr. on Thursday confirmed that for October, criminal jury trials will be held the first and third weeks of the month.

The second session is possible because a panel of jurors already has been summoned to hear civil trials, but most of the civil cases that were set to go to trial have settled.

Court Administrator Karen Kuhn was not available Thursday to provide additional details.
