    but they're wasting my time. I don't mean to sound like a *****, but I'm no fan of this.

    Twice!

    Both times were when I was in my late 20s. The first time, the trial was an attempted murder charge against a woman. I was sick as a dog with bronchitis, but I didn't want to miss this once in a lifetime experience. I was chosen from the first draft, and on the day of the trial I...

    Was horrible. Had it happen once.

    Of all days it was on my birthday, and I spent several hours waiting all alone. Done nothing for my birthday as usual. After waiting from morning to around 5 at night, I wasn't even needed. It's just something of my past that hurts and I want to forget.

    But I Had To Turn It Down

      Since self-employment can make it difficult to participate in jury duty without a serious disruption to one's business, most communities will allow you an exemption if you can show good reason to be excused. In my case, I travel out of state for nearly all my...

    I Got Out Of It

    I was summoned for jury duty last year. Lucky for me, it was set for the same week I had my final exams at college. I wrote them a letter explaining why I needed to be excused, and they let me off. Now I live my life in paranoia waiting for them to summon me again. (slight...

    Only Once

    I'm probably jinxing myself by saying this but I have only been called for jury duty once. It was real easy because I wasn't picked to be a juror for the trial and was able to go home instead of returning to the jury pool. I guess it was a slow day or maybe it's because I said I...

    The woman who was charged had been at a hotel

    one night with her daughter and boyfriend. The daughter was asleep and they got drunk. She told him he had too much and he threw his glass at her, which missed and flew through a window. So the cops are called by the neighbors, and the owner of the hotel doesn't want to press...

    Two Days In the Box

    It was a simple case of auto theft and the prosecutor was going for the lesser charge of possession of a stolen vehicle. Yet it still took almost the entire first day for them just to pick the jury. I thought having family in law enforcement would get me tossed by the defense but...

    It Made Me Feel Judgmental

    I am telling you, I realize a jury of our peers is a necessary evil to maintain some kind of stability in our society and keep law present in order to remain safe, however I think there should be a moral box to check to opt out. We had to alter a kids life forever because bottom...

    About To Go

    I'm due for jury selection in about two and a half hours. Despite sending in an exemption request about how I don't have a car and don't know how I'm going to get there. Fortunately, I've found a drive. However, I'm not impressed. Are they punishing me for not voting Conservative...

    I have been summoned for jury duty five times in the last 20 years. On the first three occasions, I did nothing but sit in the jury assembly room and read. I wasn't even called for initial interviewing, and by the third day, all potential jurors who hadn't been put on a case were...
