On Monday I received a notice to report for "jury duty", while I know it's my civic duty to serve my city, I found it to be a pain. However, when I arrived in Judge Carpenter's chambers I was very comfortable from the very beginning. Once interviewed by Your Honor, I had a chance to be picked for jury. I was a little disappointed but I was soon encouraged by Your Honor that this case would be a short one. Day after day I felt comfortable as to her explainations of the law and what we should look at/for during testimonies. I felt extraordinaryly "special" when there were cops in the courtroom and they began to stand up and she pointed and said "NO one stands before my jury" :) She was fair and also very easy to listen to. ANYONE that has the honor of being in her courtroom I do hope you enjoy your duty as a juror.
Also her staff was wonderful. Anything we needed it was given to us, no questions asked.
Thank you for reading my post, hope it made you feel a little better of becoming a juror.
