Jury Duty is OVER

>> Wednesday, May 25, 2005

I was on panel for a criminal case against 2 people today. Assaulting a police officer was the #1 charge for each of them. They each had 3 additional pending charges stemming from the incident. I can't remember what they all were. I was not in the top 25 jurors, and only 1 potential juror was released for cause, so I was saved!

I sat next to a retired Iowa State Patrolman. The judge asked him, in light of his numerous years, whether he could be a fair and impartial juror. He said he thought he could, but nobody would give him the chance. He was NOT released for cause, but he was seated after me (once again keeping him from serving).

Mr Beamish, there was no bailiff in the room. There were police outside the door. I didn't want to be charged with the crime I was there to hear!!!
