Retrial Ordered Where Juror Was a Felon and Juror Failed to Disclose

Felons not having had their rights restored may not serve on juries.  I have had felons report for jury duty and who failed to disclose a felony record.  Fortunately we have discovered it before they served on a jury.  If this is not discovered, a mistrial or retrial could be ordered as that juror is not qualified to serve.
