I got it as soon as I turned 18. We were there for about 10 minutes then they came out and said the guy pleaded guilty or something and everyone could go home. So that was fun. It's easy though. Nothing to it.

video games? music? how does that happen while you're on the jury? BTW, idk if this is the interview for the jury or the actual trial. All I got was an automated machine telling me where to meet at 10 am tomorrow when I called. I think its the actual trial.

I hope it's just for today if its the actual trial. Can't afford to have my normal pay taken away.

Did you try to get out of it? You could've lied and said you are without transportation or have said that you have religious beliefs that are incompatible with jury duty.

You shouldn't be on an actual trial yet. Basically what they do is bring alot of potential jurors in to a big room, and whenever a case does need jurors, they will call out random names who will then be selected to jury. Usually most cases get solved before this ever happens though. You could be waiting the entire day in the big room, or be the first case to get settled...either way, in there, make sure you have something to do. In the juror's room I was in, they had movies playing as well as computers set up...hope this clears it up a bit

Take a book...may be a long day.

Do not lie or try to get out of it. Be honest.

Jury duty is an important part of the justice system and an obligation of citizenship.

I had a very tough experience as a juror on a murder trial...but that was only because I was honoring my duty as a juror. It also scared me...if good people excuse their way out of jury duty....what happens to justice?

If you are selected...do what is right.

I have been on 2 jury duties in completely different capacities. One was for manslaughter, and the other for illegal turn.

The defendant went out of his way to ask for a trial by jury to prove a point in the second one. One of the best days of my life.

The manslaughter trial, not so much.
