Mrs. Carter declined to serve on the jury because she was not a believer in capital punishment and didn’t want her beliefs to get in the way of the trial.
“But, Mrs.Carter,” said the public defender, who had taken a liking to her kind face and calm demeanor, “This is not a murder trial. It is merely a civil lawsuit being brought by a wife against her husband. He gambled away the fifteen thousand dollars he’d promised to spend on a chinchilla coat for her birthday.”
“Hmmm,” reflected Mrs.Carter. “Okay then, I’ll serve, I could be wrong about capital punishment.”
Have a great weekend everybody!
