Title: Jury duty
Post by: Russell Kanning on September 24, 2019, 07:19 AM NHFT
I am headed out for Jury Duty today in Corsicana, TX for some sort of State district court. I haven't actually been around for when they "summons" me. We will see how long I last.

Jurors should be gonged off the panel.  Where's Chuck Barris when we need him?

exactly
well they said they had a very low turnout (only 80 instead of say 200)
and the judge was afraid we would not be able to "seat" a jury
but they eventually landed on 14 people, so they just barely got their 12 plus 1
I was not selected. If I don't make it this time, I guess I never will.
the guy is accused of 3rd degree felony choking (2 to 10 years if convicted)
