If you don't appear they will issue a warrant and come get you. If you don't want to do jury duty, just tell them that it was cause financial hardship if you miss work and they will usually dimiss you. I told them that my spouse was a truck driver and that he couldn't miss a load for financial reasons and they dismissed him and he didn't even have to go at all. I also got it in writing, just in case

Anyone remember the guy that was beaten so badly in the aftermath of the Rodney King trial? I don't recall his name but he had warrants out for his arrest (while he was in the hospital) for not responding to jury duty requests.

I was supposed to show for jury duty I called the court house to see what I needed to do. They told me and I said( what if I just say he is guilty) They told me right then not to show up that I was no longer needed.I guess that is all it took.I never had to go after I said that.

There ya go, just say something like, "hang 'em all", or "I aint prejudiced, I discriminate equally against blacks, yellows, reds, and browns, I don't like italians, irish, mid-easterners- especially jews. A woman's place is in the home, I need one for my kitchen. But honest judge, I wouldn't let all that get in the way of honoring my civic duty! By the way, I was innocent of those dui's back in the 90's, no matter what the record says."

Here in Iowa you say something dumb and you sit in a room by yourself and you go home when the jury does
