  • O'BRIEN: Skipping out on jury duty is nothing but trouble

    O'BRIEN: Skipping out on jury duty is nothing but trouble

    Friday, July 18 2014 7:51 PM EDT2014-07-18 23:51:05 GMT
    For the second time in my 17 1/2 years of living in Adams County, I was summoned for jury duty. I was probably the only one of the 60 or so jurors who showed up for work on Monday bummed that I wasn't going to be selected to serve. I was a juror in a 2006 drug case and enjoyed it. I was the Herald-Whig's sports editor at the time, and it was partly because of that experience that I told myself that if the crime beat ever opened up that I would look into it.
