    I did about four years ago. I found it very interesting though there is a lot of hanging about. Take a good book. I was surprised by how many cases, 80% of those I was called for, involved sexual exploitation of young people. All girls.

    You will be instructed not to discuss ongoing cases with anyone. One evening my wife asked about a case - it was a two day one. I refused to say and she got quite cross with me. The following day I told her about the case and her immediate reaction was "guilty." Which left me then to explain that was why I didn't speak about it before as she would unwittingly have influenced my view. The guy was actually clearly guilty but there was no evidence.

    It's a hard job and depending on the make of the jury you may get some surprises.

    Morning all. Yeah, wet and windy here. Went to the cinema yesterday evening with my brother who stayed over night to see 'A star is born', not bad 7/10.

    I'd like to do jury service. In my working days, if I was ever working near the Old Bailey I would go to the visitors gallery in my lunch break, always found it interesting.

    Are you taking the p***? Having eyes that are too close together clearly means a person is guilty. It is a well known fact. :laugh:
