I supposed to "be available" for three freakin' months according to the first letter. Second letter came and told me to call a number on Monday night for a Tuesday trial. Last monday and last night when I called the message the recording said the trials were cancelled. Though last night they didn't tell me to call back next Monday! Am I through?
This can't possibly continue through December! My boss thinks WV is backward and if this continues I'll be wearing down all my favors for those who have to cover for me, be available to do my work, only for me to walk in on Tuesday mornings.
Don't they have a better system? To require me to "be on the hook" for three months is simply not a good jury selection system.
Anybody else experience this situation?
OK, so I called the courthouse and spoke to a live person. Only on the hook if you get a letter. Doesn't roll over as I originally thought! (Stoopit Lep! One letter = one phone call. But hey, this is my first time!).
So for future reference and forum inquiry.
1.) They send you an initial letter telling you the timeframe to which you'll be committed. Fill out questionairre and return it.
2.) Wait to get letter with a court date, then call the phine number the night before to see if the trail will really take place.
3.) Afterwards, wear a sticker that says "Kiss me, I was a jury member who voted to convict the dirty SOB!"
