Lubbock County Judges To File Contempt Of Court Charges Against Absentee Jurors

Show up for jury duty or go to jail. Lubbock County is now following through with the warning it issued last week.

200 potential jurors failed to show up for jury duty Monday. On Tuesday, Judge Mackey Hancock sent letters to each of those jurors. The letter states they have one week to reschedule their jury duty. If they do not contact the Central Jury Pool, action will be taken. You could be held in Contempt of Court.

That calls for jail time in some situations and or a fine of up to $1,000.
