Question and an honest mistake on my side. I have never been selected for Jury duty but got a summons to appear in early November.
I made an attempt in writing to be excused (self-employed, busy schedule) but was denied. I attempted to reschedule online for a better date, but didn't. The only dates available were Tuesdays-Thursdays. Mondays and Fridays were blacked out. After not rescheduling I resided to go, but I would ask the Judge to be dismissed if this would run beyond one day when I appeared in the morning.
I wake up this morning (wrote reminder in schedule book and Ipad calendar reminder) and realized my date was 12/11, not 12/12. I think receiving note in November (11) and schedule being blocked on Mondays, I somehow wrote wrong date. I realize this is only my fault.
My question. Do I roll the dice and do nothing? Do I call and explain the situation and more then likely get rescheduled? I called the hotline this morning (supposed to call the night before ) and over 1/2 the jurors were told they didnt need to appear. I was juror like 10## something, so maybe I got lucky anyway.
I realize I'm an idiot, but just looking for advice what you would do?
