So I work a night job, and I had jury duty this past Monday. I worked Sunday night, and I sleep through the morning and into the afternoon. Completely forgetting I had jury duty that day. I took out the paper they sent me, and it said that if I fail to report to jury duty, I will either get fined $500, or get imprisoned for 10 days, or both. First of all, I'm not a criminal. I wouldn't last 10 minutes in jail, let alone 10 days. And I'm not able to pay 500 bucks out of my pocket. I've got my car insurance to pay for, and my health insurance to pay for. $500 bucks is not in my plan. What usually happens to most people if they forget to show up?
