In a criminal case you don't need a court form to demand a jury trial. If you have any trial at all it's going to be by jury. If you wanted the case to be tried by a judge you'd have to make a special request and waive your constitutional right to a jury trial.
The form offered by my colleague is for civil cases where there is not right to a jury trial unless one is demanded.
