So this came in the mail today.
Sometimes I grumble more about getting these than others. The last time I got one, I got excused early in the process because I had a set business trip I was leaving for later in the week, and the attorneys couldn't guarantee they would be done in time. I blogged about that adventure here.
The time before that, I was close to getting "caught," but was luckily a few jurors away after spending all day long on the process. That case was for a guy that brought part of a joint into the jail. As I recall, it was in the pocket of his jacket. Bring drugs into a jail is yet another charge. What it really came down to is the police or sheriff's department didn't search him well enough during his arrest. At least that was my impression. I really think I blogged about that, but I can't find the post. It's not coming up by searching "marijuana." It should come up that way because I now remember that there was something in voir dire about marijuana being pronounced and spelled in some odd way by one of the attorneys. Surely, I blogged about that. I found where I said I was going to blog about it, but I must not have gotten around to it. Sort of like a couple of months ago when I said I was going to blog about the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. I haven't gotten around to that either.
Of course, the one time I did serve on a jury, it resulted in two long, hilarious posts. If you have never read about it before, you really need to read "The Potato Chip Story" part 1 and part 2. Seriously, it had to have been the dumbest trial ever. Judge Judy would have told them so.
I mean it. Click on those links. You need to go read it.
