I’m pretty sure that everyone here knows what your civic obligation is, jury duty. Basically, you go to the courthouse and then with the others attending you decide whether or not the suspect is guilty. Attending is also mandatory unless you have a good motive not to attend.
A woman in Denver Colorado is currently being charged after she decided to share her diabolical plot of how she evaded jury duty. Susan Cole, 57, decided to brag about it in hopes that she would become famous. Unfortunately, calling in to a radio talk show to brag about breaking the law and her civil obligation is the wrong way to go. She exposed her secret, pretending she was “mentally unstable” by her apparel. Cole confessed that “[she] decided not to put [her] makeup on, put black eyebrows [and] red lipstick on.” That can already be classified as ‘unstable’, but she added, “I left my hair in my curlers and I put on a t-shirt that said ‘Ask Me About My Best-Seller.’” She could have gotten away with it, but unfortunately the moron that she is; she decided to brag about it and because of that is being charged with first degree-perjury and attempt to influence a public servant.
She had it thought out because she had it planned out several months before she told prosecutors that she had PTSD and was horribly traumatized from everything that she had experienced. She is expected to surrender because she does not have any justification that could come to her aid.
