Jury service is the obligation of every citizen. “Forgetting” to show up is not an excuse. In fairness to jurors who do show up for jury duty, we are holding those who do not appear accountable for their actions. Consequently, the court will issue a warrant for the arrest of those jurors who fail to appear.
