Shot myself in the foot!

Was joking around about Jury Duty and I got a Jury Summons in the mail today.

:blink:

Of all days it starts- Valentines day.

:lol:

Luckily nothing that bad has happend in this area for awhile so it shouldn't be that long...

Sometimes cases take years to get to court. Don't count out a tough one yet.

It's easy to get off jury duty... just start screaming that so-and-so is guilty.

Thats what everyone keeps telling me to do.

Hopefully since next Tuesday MONDAY is Valentines Day, they will call it off.

*knock on wood*

I'm just glad some of the bigger cases around here have already had their Jury selections. Last thing I want is to be in one of those cases that drags on for several months, especially since they (usually) only pay 15-25 cents per mile you travel and I don't live no further then 2 miles.

Of course, if it were big like the MJ trial, I could probably make some change with my own book...

:shifty:

Give some serious thought before you try to get out of jury duty by doing what RooK said to do. People will remember you for what you say in such a situation, and your decision to take the easy way out may come back to haunt you at a later time.

Well it's over.

Definitely a new experience.

Sat by quietly while most argued during the jury deliberations.

According to the law, the defendant wasn't guilty... but what we found at the end was that the person was still going away for weapon charges in another case.

Every person has their day in the sun

lol
