I got a letter for it 1ce but my mom called & got me out of it due to me having a low vision disorder. She had to write the judge a letter & he got me out of it.

My dad was selected for a grand jury 1ce for a murder trial & him & my mom noticed some strange things while it was going on. A vehicle would drive slowly by our house regularly & we would get phone calls where the caller would hang up rite after. When my dad was selected for jury duty again he told the judge about this & how he was kind of worried during the grand jury due to that & it was hard for him to be fair & objective. The judge let him off.

How do you know I'm mad? said Alice.
You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.
