My husband has been called to serve on jury duty many times. He was actually feeling rather harassed by the number of times and called about it once and they said he was summoned by error. You are only supposed to be summoned once every three years. There are federal and county cases , so it could be slightly more often.
I have always upheld my duties and have voted in every election. Yes, even the boring ones where you only are voting on judges. Have I ever been asked to serve on jury duty? No!! I am one of the few people that would love to do it and you even get paid , although not very much.
I am so excited because I have finally received a summons. Yes!! I am supposed to appear in mid-September and I can't wait. Knowing my luck they probably won't need me or I won't be chosen. Do you think that my views for the death sentence on all crimes will be a problem? ;-)
I am interested in hearing from all of you about your jury duty experiences.
