How was your experience with Jury Duty?

I have a child with disabilities so I've been exempt from it at least for a while.

  • I've ONCE served on a jury for a three day drug trial, which ended with a conviction. I have been called for jury duty many times and usually end up spending a morning in the jury room. We live in a one-day one-trial county, so if you're called and dismissed without serving on your first day, you're done for the year.

  • I have not served on a jury, however my mother was on a grand jury for 6 months. She had to sit on the jury for a few days each a month for 6 months. Mostly they heard cases on drugs and guns. Believe it or not, she actually was paid quite well for it.
