Has anyone on here got off jury service 19:49 - Jan 19 with 2242 viewsgerryitfc

I did once. Got home from holiday to find a letter on the door mat. When it said is there any reason why i wouldn't be suitable i said if i thought he/she was a Norwich fan I'd just find them guilty. I got let off and have never been asked since. I'd find it so boring.

Depends what the case is though surely. I got summoned last year and only got called up four days in. Of the 15 called into the court room, I was one of three who wasn't chosen so ended up being put on a reserve list and sent home. That was the sum total of my service.

Good to see the notion of civic duty is alive and well.

In Factual's Benevolent Dictatorship all justice will be summary, commensurate with the offence, and carried out with forgiving violence.

I was 23.....a long time ago. Couldn't be bothered with it. You've never done it either by your comment.

I done it a couple of years ago. First week I had one case which lasted about 3 hours. The other 4 days I was either told to not bother coming in, or I had to go in then got sent home after 2/3 hours. The second week I had a case which lasted 2 (it may well have been 3 - can’t quite remember) days. The other days I was just told to not bother coming in.

I actually quite enjoyed it, would happily do it again.

Thanks to my youthful drunken behaviour the Criminal Justice system classed me as unsuitable for Jury duty. Lucky for me, all my employers who asked just thought I was a bit of a lad in my early days and it never stopped me getting a job.
So, long story short, get nicked and no Jury duty ever.

Nowadays you can get out of it quite easy but back in the early 90's you had to have been convicted within x amount of years of an offence capable of imprisonment.

Mine was roughly 95 which was lucky then.

Which rather underpins my thought that your judgement (or lack of ) would not be fitted to jury service,

About 10 years ago my Mrs got a double murder which lasted about 10 days from memory. She really enjoyed it - and took it very seriously.

I can get that but for me it just doesn't do it. The day I left school my attention span f****d off.

I don't object to doing it in principle, but it would be a nightmare to be summoned just as I had a string of time-sensitive work projects lined up. Being a sole trader, it could put a serious dent in my business and possibly alienate customers.

Would that suffice nowadays?

Surely would. Got a business to run guv and no back up and all that would have to be taken into consideration.

Well it looks like a duck, it sounds like a duck. Nope, dunno what it is.

Oh fair enough mate. I was sort of asking rather than assuming.

I have no idea but hoped common sense would have some place.

Put like that, then probably not.

Maybe I got lucky and never got selected.
I was told that I would never be a civil servant or a police officer or be selected for jury service.
None of these futures appealed to be me so meh.
All because I was walking home with 8 pints in my gut and a traffic cone on my head.

You could be right. Would certainly hope it was possible to defer. Have never been called, so not needed to deal with such a problem.

Never been called, would like to do it but would struggle with work now.

A few friends have had interesting cases, but they just drag on - one girl did a murder case and you'd lose a day doing a visit somewhere so in 8-9 weeks most days were a few hours if even that
