Well I called the number on the card last night to see if the case had been settled outside of the courtroom but unfortunately it said I still needed to appear. I texted my boss to let him know and put in a vacation day request (so I could get paid for the day). I got up this morning and got ready and went to the courthouse to see if I had to be a part of the jury or the lucky ones who get to leave. We ended up being in the smaller courtroom because there happened to be 2 trails this morning which we were told is unheard of. We sat like sardines for an hour and a half and the judge came in and said that the defendant plead guilty in their pre trial meeting so we were all dismissed. Thank the Lord! I was able to make it to work by 11am so I can work 7 hours today and cancel my vacation day. I want to use it for a warmer day or worse weather.
