Six weeks on a civil real estate deal. Very interesting and learned a lot. Verdict for the defendant.
Eight weeks on a death penalty murder trial. A guy killed a 12 yr old boy then cut him up and encased him in concrete. There are pictures in my head that I'll never be able to get rid of. Guilty +death sentence.
Two and a half weeks on a hit and run case where a 20 something girl driving a Prius with her boyfriend in the car hit an 80+ old man and killed him. Guilty
Drug possession case. We found him guilty, but what we didn't know it was his third strike. Automatic 25 to life.
I feel I've done my civic duty in this department. Once the attorneys find out that you've been on a jury and you came to a decision regardless of the outcome they want you. They don't want to go through the whole trial to have a hung jury and have to start over. When I was on the murder trial it started with a jury pool of 1400 people. I'm looking at this sea of people thinking there's no way I'm getting picked. Next thing I know I'm in the box with my right hand up getting sworn in.

Been called a few times, but always dismissed. The last time was for multiple murders. They asked me if he was found guilty, could I have an open mind about the sentencing. I said no, murder = death penalty and I wouldn't want anything less. I think they would have dismissed me, but during a recess, the guy got cold feet and took the plea bargain.
The money they paid me didn't even cover parking and lunch, let alone gas. What a deal! Oh well, still got paid at work. :)
