Did you know…?

…over 90% of all cases never come before a jury, because they are plea bargained, settled or tried before a judge?

…that my first foray into civic duty was halted due to a plea deal?

…that I didn’t find that out until I got dressed, put on my make-up and drove all the way downtown?

…they won’t let you go the next courtroom to try to get on that jury?

  3. I at least got to the deliberation room before the plea. And got to ask the judge questions. I hope the next time will be more enlightening!

    PS. I dress up for court, too.
