Psychic Jury Duty

Jury Duty

(Read part 2 here.)So, I’m really interested to see how this all goes down.

On Monday I have to report for Jury Duty. Here, in the US, it’s something that everyone is required to do. Many people don’t like it although certain people absolutely love it. My husband, for example, spent a few days in a trial and found it fascinating.

My take on it is a little different though.

During Jury selection, I will be asked specific questions about myself and obviously one of those questions will be about what I do for work…

(Ha ha – do you see where I’m going with this?)

So, I’m going to do an experiment and tell the exact real truth. I work professionally as an intuitive.

What do you think it going to happen? Will they want me on the jury or will they run away? I’m over the stigma surrounding what I do for work – in fact, I really embrace it and the people I come into contact with in my normal life embrace it too!

But what will happen when I announce this in a court? Share your thoughts below!

For the outcome – read Part 2 here!

Love & Light,
Danielle

      Being truthful is always the best way to go. I have served on a few trials. It will depend on the type of court case, and how the attorneys perceive you. Either way, it will be and adventure!

    Danielle they will either embrace this and think you are a blessing and can help or they will think your a whack job! Although intuitives are more and more these days. Have fun if you get choosen.

    Hi Danielle….last time I was called for jury duty was a drunk driver case. They asked if I could be impartial and being honest I said No…I don’t drink and I feel there is No excuse for driving drunk…I was excused. When you tell them you are an intuitive….could you ignore an intuitive knowing of guilt when evidence “was not” presented to support what you feel sure of when you are instructed to convict based solely on the evidence? Hummm….a moral dilemma perhaps?

      excellent point!! I think that the chances are greater for you to be excused because of bias about your type of work, but don’t let that stop you!!!

    Yes of course you must tell the truth about your occupation. I think the ensuing weeks will be freed up for you to do your wonderful work. Please let us know the outcome. Sorry, I am laughing, I can hear some of the thoughts of those people around you in the courtroom. Many are favourable, just not from the people responsible for picking you for the jury. (The thoughts are not mine).

    Danielle, my best guess is that you will be excused and not because they think you are a wacky, but because one side will not want the truth exposed……….

    Could go either way. Because you are intuitive, that might scare the guilty party to want to do the right thing in the case. Or, because you are intuitive, they may not want you on the case.
    I was selected on the very first “one case, one trial” that is used today. I learned that just the fact that the case appears before a jury, generally makes the case settle quickly. Congrats on being selected. Hope you enjoy the experience.

    They may reject you most likely for jury duty if it’s a criminal case, however, I wouldn’t be surprised if after looking you up online they approached you to help with defense cases. 🙂

    I acknowledged you for honoring you responsibility as a citizen. Jury duty is at least as much of a part of civics as voting and many would say more so. As I embrace being an “adult” I see the importance of letting my inner world shape my outer world and to buffer my outer world shaping my inner world. Whoa, maybe that is what it is to be an adult? Anyhows, I have been a law enforcer for 20 years, I assure you, anything can happen in court. I have witnessed a tremendous about of mackernations about what will happen and next to nothing about the reality that unless one is an intuitive, we haven’t a clue. The irony right? I too am a trauma survivor and I have a deep respect for you honoring your truth. It heals me.
    In gratitude,
    Mike

    I think you will be excused! They may question you about the details of your work because they will be intrigued. But in the end, one side will make the decision to “thank you for your service” and excuse you! I hope I am wrong because there might be a great Danielle story that flows from serving on the jury!

    Good for you, can’t wait to hear what happens! This is my best guess: I think a couple of people, probably men, will snicker and eye roll. Someone might ask if you can actually make a living doing it, as a way of letting everyone know they aren’t entirely comfortable with your occupational choices. And I think you’ll eventually be dismissed or sent back to the jury room. I also think you’ll get mentioned by the judge and the attorneys in personal conversations afterward in a “guess what happened today” context.

    It all is going to depend on who has the most power in the decision! If the defendant is guilty of something they will not take the chance of you being on the jury and if the defendant is innocent they will embrace you to help prove the truth! A crap shoot at best, good luck!

    Oh, your beginning journey with the court system reminded me of my own journey where I was asked to be present in court to potentially testify. The attorney for the defendant came into the room I was waiting in and noticed that I was reading a book. So he comments that it was good I had something to read and what was it about. I said, “Fairies 101.” By the way, this book was given to me as a gift because the friend knew I had occasionally seen fairies. When I saw the look on his face, I knew he was not going to call me to testify and he didn’t. I remember chuckling to myself as he left the room and the thought I said to myself was I am who I am. Good luck with however it flows and I’m eager to hear out turns out!

    Tell them you know who did it and get out of it. Depending of the nature of the case you may be bored to tears. Life is too short for bad wine and jury duty.

    Trial by Jury is a process and a process which employs all sorts of machinations and ‘legal precedents’ often used to bias a case. As you are a committed ‘truth teller’ with special insights, I seriously doubt the prosecution will want you anywhere near this courtroom during the trial. It may depend on how many of the jurors have been picked and how many have been relieved as unacceptable to the prosecution before they come to you. It will be interesting to find out the focus of the case.

    I agree that it could go either way. I’m sure you don’t watch TV much, but if you ever get the chance, take a look at a show called “Bull” on Tuesday nights at 8:00 CST. It’s an interesting take on jury selection. I think you will find it interesting. It is one of my favorites of the few I watch. So, tell your truth and let the chips fall where they may!

    Danielle I don’t think that either side are going to want you on the jury for the pure disruption you may cause lol. I’d love it if you were selected though and to read a blog about your experiences. 😘

    I feel the defense attorney will NOT want you on the jury unless they feel confident that their client is really innocent of the charges.
