Just got excused from jury duty and I was in line for an hour or so next to a charming young lady who goes by "Gem" on this forum.

I was wearing a tee shirt with "Triumph" in big letters across the back and she told me her husband also had a Triumph.

As we talked she told me about this forum so I stopped at a Starbucks on my way home and logged on.

The trial we were chosen for was about aggravated robbery. The judge told us that just an hour ago the defendant was offered 10 years and he refused. Apparently they let him peek out in the hall to see 65 prospective jurors and he must have thought he had no chance with this bunch so he agreed to the deal. Then he found out that deal expired an hour ago and the new time was 15 years. He still agreed to do the sentence.
