    I've been on jury duty several times and every time there's been a murder case I get excused. Ha Ha. So maybe if you look at the accused unsympathetically the attorney will dismiss you. LOL

    Like I said, as much as I tell them I would be impartial, and I would, I either get excused by the defense for having police bias or by the prosecution for having defense bias. They find my family background too inflammatory to risk.

    @bulldogs4me - OR you could do it like "Liz Lemon" does on 30 Rock; she dresses up at Princess Leah from Star Wars and talks about extraterrestrials. Dismissed!

    It depends on the State you live in. In Ohio the jury lottery was selected from registered voters. I was chosen three times there. served on one local jury in a drunk driving case in my early 20's.
    was dismissed before selection second time in my early 30's and the third was actually in Federal court. I was in my late 30's, where I had to drive an hour and a half away from home to go to court each day for almost a week, and I was on a jury in a patent lawsuit.

    Funny thing is I met up with my cousin in the jury selection room at the Federal one where he was up for serving on a murder case jury. Both cases were in federal court, but they called different people for the different cases, They just made us all wait in the same selection room for a while. That murder case they were telling the jurors to expect the process to take at least 6 months. I was sure glad I wasn't called up for that one!

    Here in Wisconsin they go by driver's licenses and I was called once already and didn't serve on a jury. They said it would be 4 years before I could be picked again. That was about 5 years ago now, so they could call at anytime again I suppose.

    I love jury duty!!

    I've been called before got selected and sat in the jury box for a full week on a case only to be excused cause I was one of two alternates. I was pissed. I got summoned last year and the year before (Federal and State Courts) and didn't have to show up for the jury pool. I think I like it because I work for a law firm and it's fun to me to see how the attorneys present their case.

    I didn't get picked ... apparently I said something that the defense attorney didn't like and kicked me out.

    Me too!! No one wants a psych RN on their Jury. Why is that? lol. Actually, last time I was selected as Jury # 12 it was for a Child molestation case. I was only too glad to be dismissed!!

    I would love to do it for you, Leesa!! Now that I am paid for Jury duty I would do it as often as they call me!!


    I'm a good girl, I promise
