FiveM-JailNJury or Jail N' Jury is a advanced jail, and justice system / resource for FiveM servers. Jail N' Jury offer's advanced jail features with a democratic justice system. If a arrestee feels that they have been falsely jailed, they may request a trial by a jury of their peers, the people of your server's state. Fear of arrestees escaping? Have no worry, this is literally impossible. People disconnecting to avoid jail? No problem, the justice system has your back and will jail them upon return!


Arrest System

Law Enforcement Officers are able to jail arrestees via the jail command. The arrest is then logged via json and placed into the jailed players file. If the arrestee disconnects, their time is paused at whatever time was remaining when they left the server. When the player reconnects, they are re-jailed for the same time, and charges as prior. The prison is able to detect if a arrestee is attempting to escape and will teleport them back to the jail, it is literally impossible to escape the jail.

Justice System

An arrestee may only request a court case if their time is longer than 10 minutes. Once the court case has been granted, their jail time is paused and an advertisement is given to all players regarding an upcoming court case. Players are given 5 minutes to make their way to the courthouse for a chance at becoming a juror. A minimum of 3 jurors must be present for the court case to proceed. There is a maximum of 5 jurors. Jurors are selected randomly from players at the courthouse and cannot be any police personnel. Selected jurors are then briefed on the suspect's charges. The arrestee and jurors are then teleported to the court room. The arrestee is given 1 minute to explain their charges to the jurors, at this time the jurors are muted and cannot speak or type. After the 1 minute has passed, the arrestee is teleported back to the prison and awaits the verdict. The jurors are then unmuted and are able to type and must deliberate for 1 minute. After the 1 minute has passed, the jurors are then muted again and asked to cast their verdict, they are given 30 seconds. After this, jurors are relieved from their duty and teleported back to the courthouse entrance. The verdict is then calculated. For a arrestee to be found not guilty, they must have a 2/3 or 3/5 vote. The verdict is then displayed to the public and the arrestee is either re-jailed for their remaining time or released depending on the outcome of the trial.

  • Gaming-Asylum - Gaming-Asylum-Wiki - Gaming Asylum Servers have a similar jail and justice system on their Arma 3 servers. I drew inspiration from this server because their system is very effective and fun.
