Every year thousands of Westchestercounty residents are called for Jury Duty. I spent 3 days as a Juror –waiting to be called for a serious criminal case (that was settled when the defendant pleaded guilty of rape and agreed to be sentenced to 27 years in prison). I read lots of magazines, enjoyed chatting with my fellow Jurors. But, I wasn’t very productive because there was no trial & because I hadn’t even been picked for the panel.
Computer rooms that are accessible to Jurors who are waiting around should be established at the County Court House. In addition, the county should WIFI the courts so Jurors could do work on their computers while waiting around for hours or days. This would make Jury Duty less of an imposition for Jurors who might be able to get some professional work done.
