Do Not Attend Jury Duty ; Go Straight to Jail

Not going to jury duty has its price.  At least this man found out the hard away via AP

“A Pennsylvania man who skipped out on jury duty 11 times in the last two years has been arrested inside a courthouse while attending a child custody hearing.
Somerset County Judge D. Gregory Geary told 32-year-old Owen Fazenbaker III on Monday that he found it “ironic” that Fazenbaker could find his way to court for that but not for jury duty.
Fazenbaker promised to serve on future juries if the judge would not impose a $500 fine and 10 days in jail for each time he has missed jury duty.
The (Somerset) Daily American reports that the judge said the Stoystown man could avoid a seven-day jail term if he pays a $500 fine.”

Next time, he might reconsider his decision.  Really reconsider.  $500 is a lot of money for stupid mistake like missing jury duty.
