Reason for the delay. The prosecution may not excessively delay the trial for its own advantage, but a trial may be delayed to secure the presence of an absent witness or other practical considerations e.
Time and manner in which the defendant has asserted his right. If a defendant agrees to the delay when it works to his own benefit, he cannot later claim that he has been unduly delayed. Degree of prejudice to the defendant which the delay has caused.

Superior Court, U. Juries in the United States The right to a jury has always depended on the nature of the offense with which the defendant is charged.
Petty offenses—those punishable by imprisonment for no more than six months—are not covered by the jury requirement. Originally, the Supreme Court held that the Sixth Amendment right to a jury trial indicated a right to "a trial by jury as understood and applied at common lawand includes all the essential elements as they were recognized in this country and England when the Constitution was adopted.
When, under the Fourteenth Amendmentthe Supreme Court extended the right to a trial by jury to defendants in state courts, it re-examined some of the standards. It has been held that twelve came to be the number of jurors by "historical accident," and that a jury of six would be sufficient,  but anything less would deprive the defendant of a right to trial by jury.
However, the Supreme Court has ruled that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, while requiring states to provide jury trials for serious crimes, does not incorporate all the elements of a jury trial within the meaning of the Sixth Amendment.
Thus, states are not mandated to require jury unanimity, unless the jury has only six members.
Impartiality has been interpreted as requiring individual jurors to be unbiased. At voir direeach side may question potential jurors to determine any bias, and challenge them if the same is found; the court determines the validity of these challenges for cause.
Defendants may not challenge a conviction because a challenge for cause was denied incorrectly if they had the opportunity to use peremptory challenges.

For a guilty verdict to be set aside based on the racial bias of a juror, the defendant must prove that the racial bias "was a significant motivating factor in the juror's vote to convict. Venires must represent a fair cross-section of the community; the defendant might establish that the requirement was violated by showing that the allegedly excluded group is a "distinctive" one in the community, that the representation of such a group in venires is unreasonable and unfair in regard to the number of persons belonging to such a group, and that the under-representation is caused by a systematic exclusion in the selection process.
