Default what happens if you forget to go to jury duty?

i have it on wednesday and i will be there (i really dont mind doing it). however, i was wondering just now what would happen if someone forgot to go. do they come and arrest you or some ****?

id also like to make it very clear that i WILL be there and im not going to pretend like i forgot just to get out of it like a bitch.

I was summoned and they had some stupid *** stipulations about me having to call every other day or something to see if i had to actually show up the next day for duty. I checked for a few days and they said i dindt have to come.

I forgot to call one day and it turned out THAT was the day i was supposed to go in. I never showed up or called in for an excuse.

Never heard anything about it....

my dad told me to call tomorrow night just to be sure they need me. if they do, great. if they dont, great.

Nothing happens, you're 1 out of like 200 people haha, they only need 12 so I don't think it would be hard to find a replacement, I went and they dismissed me

You go to hell.


I forgot to go to jury duty once. Luckily I didn't get picked in the "raffle" of people. You can find out if you are in the clear by calling the jury duty number. I think it just says something like "thank you for your assistance" if you weren't chosen for the jury.

In NC, if you don't show up, they issue a bench warrant for you.

I know because I was just summoned a few months ago, got out of it though.

I just recently ignored my summons for jury duty.

I'm not taking off of work for $9/day. Kiss my ***.

(my job doesn't reimburse employees and I have bills to pay)

Exactly how I felt, I was getting paid regardless so I was ok with going.

I got a "Attempted Murder, Attempted Robbery, and asult with a deadly weapon" case... I'm not going to lie, I got into it! It was intersted watching the lawyers go at it. haha

Oh and I heard if you dont go you get Aids

They don't want to even get near someone educated with a bias.
