Should You Opt for a Bench Trial or a Jury Trial?

In Massachusetts, all criminal defendants are entitled to a trial by a jury of their peers; in District Court, this is six members randomly chosen from the community, in Superior Court it’s twelve. However, a defendant has the option to waive their right to a jury trial and opt for a bench trial instead.
