Idaho Criminal Rule 30.1. Jury Questioning of Witness


The court may instruct jurors that they are individually permitted to submit to the court a written question directed to any witness. If questions are submitted, the parties or counsel must be given the opportunity to object to the questions outside the presence of the jury. If the questions are not objectionable, the court must read the question to the witness. The parties or counsel may then be given the opportunity to ask follow-up questions as necessary.
