Do your jury duty.

Manhattan Criminal Court:
The boring introductory speech takes about 45 minutes, and should begin relatively on time. Therefore, coming 45 minutes late is no big deal.

If you have a deferment, don't waster your time at the criminal court. Go straight to 60 Centre Street room 139. The line can get busy, so try to come at a good time.

If they can prove you where actually delinquent, yes, you can go to jail.
Why do people think that jury duty is fun amd games? It's a crime to miss it and if they decide to track you to see if you actually get the letters, you'll be put up in jail and get fined heavily.
I'm not who you think I am.

it's easy to get out of it once you are there already, if you choose to do so.

I have been on a few jury's I can tell you it is fun but no games.
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

Technically, you can claim ignorance until you get a letter via registered mail. CMIIW.

Realistically, the best option is to show up late.

If you come before (IIRC) 10:00 they will still accept you for the day, but most jury selections happen far before then.

When I went, they only had 3 selection the entire time from 10 to the end.

And those selections are usually to choose "Alternates" to the actual jury, so they only need 2 or 3 of the people they pull in, so it shouldn't be too hard to not get chosen.

I know of someone who had a officer come to them one day and take them to jury duty.

But I know many more who are ignoring it for years.

Which State/County?

I think in Kings County NY they have no shortage.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
