This should be great
You'll never make it to the box. $20 says BOTH sides don't want you to stay
Yeh I got it too, for dec 15th. Question for yall who've had it. In NC its 1 day or 1 trial, meaning if you get seated on a jury, you could theoretically be there 6 months. However, if you are brought in and questioned, but then turned down to be on the jury at 10 in the mornin, do you have to stay the rest of the day or can you leave when they tell you they dont want you?
I already know they aint gonna seat me, "Yes sir what do you think of the death penalty"..."HANG EM ALL!"...."Thank you sir, we wont be needing you today"
It's one trial everywhere. Can't have the jury changing every day. It may also be civil jury duty, which means you get to hear a really nice boring car wreck case rather than a criminal case.
thought I had heard of a couple places where people are placed on call for like 3 months and can be called up anytime during that period, multiple times if necessary.
That could well be. I probably misread your question - I thought that you were asking if you would have to serve more than one day, which you may (and probably will as trials are rarely that short) as opposed to serving on multiple juries. That would suck.
No, I know that if I dont get picked that one day Im done, what I was asking, can I get seated and questioned more than once in the day, or once you are deemed, 'unfit' do they send you home?
It depends on why you were deemed "unfit" and what type of case you were deemed unfit for. Example - "Hang 'em" might well get you out of a criminal trail where the death sentance is sought, but won't do squat to get you out of a civil (i.e. car wreck) trial.
Just tell them to pick you,,,because you will make a great juror,,,
Tell 'em you can spot guilty people a mile away,,,
The wife and I are both scheduled for the same day. This could get really interesting. FYI, most courtrooms don't allow firearms on civilians.
My wife gets called all the time. She never gets picked after she says "My husband says if they have been arrested, they are guilty and I concur".
The one and only time that I've made it into the box, I was low man on the totem pole. They booted an assistant sheriff's wife and a Corrections Officer before they threw me out..................
i have never been picked for it, i have a friend who is a Lt. on the city fire department who gets picked ever 2 years like clock work and they wont let him out of it becuase of his work obligations. In wisconsin you get slected for jury duty and its a 2 week comitment. If you get picked you stay until the trial is done, if you dont you have to call back every night for 2 weeks to see if they need you to show up the next day. Not a bad gig if you work for a company that pays you your normal salary and you don't have to show up.
Yeah I know
"I don't like it her, it's scary, I can't have my sidearm, I want my sidearm, people are gonna get me, ahhhhh it's all woody and scary AHHHH!"
just ask them where the "Whites only" water foutain is...
Dude, he's in South Dakota. They have only two ethnic groups there that I know of, white folk and the Indian folk...........
Yeah, the secret service guys are here with the president, and a few of them are black, and it's kind of unnerving the looks the old people give them at the cafe. The one I talked to is great, really well read.
Funny story had some antiwar propagandists in there, they gave the literature to the secret service guy. Hahahaha.
Or tell the lawyers you can't stand people that make their living off of others misfortunes,,,
Good God man, that's like throwing a 100 mph fastball at a little leaguer..................
I like it
