lol, I have no stories because all I did was sit there until they picked everyone, and then left.  I did bring a book though, to help pass the time.  What a waste of a morning.

I was on jury duty once before and it was over a DUI. What a waste of time. The lady blew over two times the legal limit and she tried to justify that the breathalizer had to be defective. There was no proof that it was and even then they had taken a blood test when they took her in that still proved she was over the limit! We spent two days listening to this lady’s case and when it came time to deliberate we all found her guilty right off the bat. What a waste of tax payers time and money.

spazzychica:  When I think of jury duty, I think of the person who got out of it by saying “pardon me’ after everything that was said to them. She was dismissed because she would have been a pain in the ass for the lawyers and the judge to have to repeat everything that was said.

When I was in college, my Business Law professor had a hilarious jury duty story. This was in DC, which is home to local, district, and federal courts, so the people who live within the District itself get called up for jury duty a LOT more than other locales. So my professor was a lawyer who had previously worked for the DA’s office. He gets called for jury duty and shows up, and is asked the usual list of questions: “Do you know the prosecutor?” “Yes, we worked together when I worked in the DA’s office.” “Do you know the defense attorney?” “Yes, I remember arguing a case against them at one point when I worked for the DA’s office.” “Do you know the Defendant?” “Yes, I prosecuted a case against him years ago.”

So naturally, he got picked for the jury.  -_-

We don’t have to show up for ours in person. They send you the information and you call a number and see if you’ve been selected to show up. I’ve been drawn for jury duty a few times and have yet to actually had to show up to the courthouse.

I was a juror once. It was a girl who committed theft. She was shown on camera stealing as well as confessing at the sheriff’s department. She pled not guilty. LOL.
