    How I Used To Avoid Jury Service

    Years ago, I worked for the County of Los Angeles and they did not pay for jury duty beyond $15 a day. Since LA is an expensive place to live, and since I was helping my elderly mother who lived in public housing, and since I did not make that much money to begin with....I had to...

    I did my 2 week stint about 3 years ago here in

    England. The first day was the longest of my life, especially if your a smoker. Every time you left the building and went back in you had to go through an x-ray scanner. The second day they pick , if I recall correctly 18 to trudge down a load of corridors and me and 5 others...

    Reported For Jury Duty Today

    Wow! It was interesting to learn more about the process of jury selection. I wished I had been selected sort of. It would have been a huge time commitment with a 10 day criminal trial with days of deliberation. But still interesting. Oh well maybe later this week. I am on all...

    Disappointed In Myself

    I didn't get chosen, which is a good and bad thing. Public speaking is not my forte. After giving my name, town, and age, I stated that I had an exemption from serving. The judge pulled me aside to discuss the exemption. I am starting my supervision hours this month and need a...

    Only Once.....

    I have been a registered voter for decades, but have only been called for jury duty one time.  It was four years ago, the week before I started my present job.  I had been a full time housewife and mother for fifteen years, not out in the public. I knew that the area I...

    I Want to Get Called!!

    I was a political science major in college and the pre-law classes fascinated me.  I even took the LSAT's and scored high enough to go to Law School, but I don't think the day in and day out duties of a lawyer would have been good fit for me.  Although in my...

    Jury Nullification

    Most people who get on juries are very well aware that if the prosecutor does not prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, that they must find the defendent "not guilty".  What many of them fail to recognize is that the reverse is not necessarily true.  If the...
