Does he have a criminal record? Seem to remember him being in court a few times, or did I dream it?

You can't serve jury duty if you have a record? If so it's probably just felons who can't serve. He was arrested but I doubt for a felony.

Maybe - sounds likely. Still a bit of experience of the legal system will surely help

Like he'll actually serve. 90% of the time I hear about celebrities being called for jury duty, they don't end up serving.

If the Jews don't fit, you must acquit.

I would think it'd be easy for anyone to get out of jury duty if they try. Just act crazy or racist or tell them you watch all of the CSI shows.

It's easier than that. Just pretend you have been personally impacted by the crime in question. "I lost a dear friend of mine to a jaywalker. I can still see that scofflaw crossing the street in front of us."

/I mentioned once -- quite honestly -- that I lost an aunt to a drunk driver in 1972, when I was seven years old. That was enough to let me off of jury duty for a drunk driving trial.
//I seriously didn't even mind serving, and knew for a fact that I could come to an impartial decision. But hey, maybe the defense attorney thought I'd have flashbacks or something.

Even easier - have a cop in the family. Pretty much gets you dismissed from any criminal trail. Civil is another matter, and those are way more boring...

Celebs serving on jury duty is total BS. And since I've adopted the stance of telling the court that it's a mandatory 5 figure $ amount for my appearance in court, I'm sure the celebs pretty much tell the courts and judgy-wudgy to pound sand.

do that, or just don't show up... I've probably been called 5 times, and have never even attempted to go... Never heard about it again... I hope a warrant isn't out for me.

He'll have a hard time with the case anyway.
It was a Jewlerly store robbery in July on Juniper Dr. where the perp, Julie J, was caught running from the store, only after she spilled juice on a passerby that reported her.

Depends on the case. If it's like an episode of Columbo or something, where it's a murder who dun it but without any real life gore or anything with kids, sure. But I'm guess most cases aren't like that and are pretty mundane. And with my hatred for judges and their farking attitudes, I'd probably end up doing more time for contempt than the defendant.

Gibson's most significant role since Braveheart.
 
2012-01-24 01:18:00 PM
Best way to get out of jury duty is to have an education. My dad gets called all the time. As soon as they find out he is a CPA he gets tossed. He is usually back by noon. If that werent enough he is a far right winger whos favorite TV shows are Matlock and NCIS reruns but they never get that far.

No way in hell he will ever sit on a jury.

As someone who was stuck in dingy jury room in Los Angeles County, they have posters of a bunch of celebrities who have served on juries (or at least shown up and were dismissed) as some sort of ringing endorsement of your civic duty as a juror. It's very goofy. But I admit, how awesome would it be if Harrison Freaking Ford was your jury foreman? "You didn't kill your wife!"

Well, you might be weird (no comment), but I was disappointed when I was called for jury duty but they didn't end up using me. I wanted to see what it was like.
People thought my awe-shucks finger snap was sarcastic, so they laughed, but it wasn't. :(

Scary thought of the day:
Glenn Beck once sat as a juror. If I remember right it was about 10 years or so ago. I can't remember the charges but I'm fairly sure they convicted and gave the death penalty.

There is a bit of rejection involved, isn't there? Even though I wasn't even interviewed because they had enough people, I still drunk dialed the courthouse.

Yeah, they call you there to judge somebody then they end up judging you. Bastards.

I'm pretty sure he can get out of it. He's a well known anti-Semite and misogynist.

According to a Jury Summons notice on the desk in front of me:
Failure to comply may subject you to a $100.00 fine and you may be found in contempt of court.

Are you familiar with the term "Bench Warrant"?

Just something to consider.

I remember that. I believe the case was about a little girl who was raped and murdered in 1990. They never did find the real killer though. So they just blamed it on the black guy.
