Have you ever served on a jury? What was your experience?
Submitted by jacolily.
I served twice, once on a case where a tow truck driver was charging cash for the tow and pocketing the money. He was found guilty.
The other case struck home with me because it was a DWI case (My brother and his wife were killed by a drunk driver). We found the man guilty on all three counts although it took a day and a half to come to an agreement. Two people on the jury didn't want to find the man guilty on all three charges simply because "they didn't want to, "pile on the brother". I told them piling on wasn't the issue, it was a matter of was he guilty on all three counts. Thankfully they agreed.
