I Don't Want to Serve on a Jury!!

Instead I'll phone in a bomb threat, or at least that's what happened out at the DuPage County Courthouse in Wheaton yesterday.

Toby Owhoka, 48, of the 900 block of College Boulevard was charged Tuesday with felony disorderly conduct, according to a news release from the DuPage County sheriff's office.

Police said Owhoka called the Jury Commission at the county courthouse in Wheaton at about 3 p.m. Tuesday "stating that she was upset about having to go to jury duty."

During her call, she made numerous threats, including one to blow up the courthouse, authorities said. After a search of the courthouse, no bomb materials were found.

When am I going to get called for jury duty?

I missed it...maybe The Connected Lawyer knows. But I was at Old Orchard last week when it was evacuated when a man with a scarf over his face was shopping.
