I served on a jury last summer during a felony trial at 76 years of age. I found it challenging and an enlightening experience and can attest to the honestly and integrity of our judical system. I would happily do it again. The fellow was appropriately sent away for five years.

This was the dumbest article I think I've read all day. All that she had to do was fill out the summons form and return it. This wasn't a case of the little guy being taken advantage of. This was a case of someone not following the instructions (in a box, highlighted, and in larger type)provided to them. Rediculous.

Integrity of the judicial system. What a joke. It's no more than a corner crap shoot!

I do not the recall what jury duty pay is. I do remember that it was a laughable amount.
As someone who works on an hourly basis to support my family, I can ill afford to serve on a jury.
