What is the Saiban-in (Lay Judge) System?

 The saiban-in system commenced in 2009.
 It is a system in which the saiban-in (lay judges), who are selected from the general public, participate in criminal trials in serious cases and determine with professional judges whether the defendant is guilty or innocent, and the sentence when guilty.
