oops, I missed Jury duty!

Today I was supposed to have jury duty and I spaced and forgot about it. I have went one time before and while I was there they said they put out a warrant for those who did not come. I had asked friends what happens if you miss and several said they just keep sending notices. I googled what happens in Delaware when you miss jury duty. A person who worked for jury services in Delaware said they tell you that to put the fear in you, but you just go back into the pool and they send another date, usually 6 months to a year from now. I feel bad, I will most likely call them and explain what happened.

Have you ever missed jury duty? If so what happened when you did?

I was supposed to once and I called to check and they had settled out of court.

DH forgot once and called and explained. They gave him another date and I think that one got canceled.

I got picked once about 7 years ago. I forgot about it and didn't go. I haven't heard anything and have never gotten a notice again.
