Close Call for Jury Duty

I was looking forward to possibly serving on a jury in Jefferson County, but after spending an entire day on hard benches sitting through the jury selection process, I missed being selected by just 2 numbers. I was number 15, but there’s only 13 seats in the jury box.

The case was a meth head that violated a restraining order and robbed some stuff. He was apparently going to plead “the meth made me do it”. I’m glad I didn’t have to sit through the case.

The attorneys, the judge, and the jury seemed to be reasonable people, so he’ll get a fair trial. Unfortunately, there’s not a lot our society can do for a meth addict besides sending him to jail.
