    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...
