Justice

For the first time ever I’m on jury duty at Glasgow Sheriff court later today. I’m not really sure what to expect but hopefully it won’t involve a lot of sitting around waiting which I detest. So no doubt there will be a lot of sitting around and waiting.

Other aspect I’m concious of is that you innocent until proven guilty. It’s one of the fundamentals of our law…but I am quick to judge usually on first impressions which is really the last thing I should do. It’s also in my head that there’s no smoke without fire. Never mind, there’s always a chance I’ll turn up only to be not picked. Hopefully.

  1. It’s ALL about the sitting and waiting.

    3 hours later, when I was picked, we spent a grand total of 8 minutes in court before the trial, only for the prosecutor to accidentally tell us something about the defendant that the judge ruled made us prejudice.

    And that was it. Sent home. No lunch either! The buggers…

  2. What did they catch you doing?
