3.3 RETURN OF VERDICT

A verdict form has been prepared for you. [Any explanation of the verdict form may be given at this time.] After you have reached unanimous agreement on a verdict, your presiding juror will fill in the form that has been given to you, sign and date it, and advise the court that you are ready to return to the courtroom.

Comment

The judge may also wish to explain to the jury the particular form of verdict being used and just how to "advise the court" of a verdict.
