What Happens If You Miss Jury Duty?

Answer

If you skip or miss jury duty, a bench warrant may be issued in your name. This could lead to an arrest during a routine traffic stop, or a sheriff showing up at your door to take you into custody. When you receive the summons, it tells you what reasons are acceptable to miss such as a handicap or illness.
