I spent all day Tuesday in the jury selection process. I was sworn in as a juror on a "very important criminal trial" at 7:00 in the evening. The trial was supposed to start Wednesday morning and continue for approximately two weeks. Never heard one word of evidence. We went to the Courthouse as directed on Wednesday morning and just sat in the Jury Room until about 11 am. At which time we were informed that the defendent had accepted a plea bargain. The judge thanked us for our service and we went home.
I don't know whether I am disappointed or relieved. I have always wanted to serve as a juror and this sounded like a very interesting case. However, the timing wasn't good for a long committent right now.
I guess the Universe is looking out for me. LOL
