Jury Duty

Have you ever been called for jury duty? Iam currently on the list. I went a couple weeks ago about a cop that had sex with a girl (that was about 14 at the time) for nearly 4 yrs. This was his 3rd trial I didn't have to be on the jury but they did finally convict him

  • Yes...just recently in fact. We had to decide if an individual fit the criteria to be considered a "sexually violent preditor" and be committed to a state mental hospital until he can pass a sexual preditor class on some kind that would take at least 3 years. Hearing all the sick things he did it wasn't hard to convict him.

  • Yes, boring waiting to be called. I went in to the courthouse, but was not selected.

  • I was called a couple of years ago, it was like a cattle call - at least 200 ppl in the jury pool. I didn't get chosen. I wouldn't mind serving tho.

  • I've never been called but my dh has 4 times. One case involved a young teen who had been raped. They convicted him. DH was traumatized for years with what he'd heard in court.

    This comment was funny I never thought about it like that.

    There were at least 200 of us sitting there as it was for the 3rd trial. I was 2nd picked to go up and stayed the whole time until they picked the final 13 I would of loved to serve he was convicted of having a sexual realtionship with a minor finally.
