He'd be fine until final deliberations, then get totally out-jurored by everyone else.

From CNN.com:

The defense attorneys slow, patient and methodical case to defend the accused confused juror #12. In an exclusive interviews by CNN Juror #12, whose identity we agreed to keep secret said and we quote "I believe and was the only one who voted for not guilty because there is no way anyone can plan a robbery in advance with that much detail. Seemed made up, like anyone would really spend that much time mapping out a game plan, and have the brains to change it during the robbery. The entire idea that they switched up what they were doing because of the unexpected alarm system was hogwash and stuff you only see in CSI".

He probably just wanted to do jury duty via video session

I never cease to be amazed at what passes for news these days. One would think Bylsma was the first person to ever get out of jury duty. At least this didn’t erupt into the scandal that Crosby’s misadventure at the DMV did. Thank heavens for small mercies.

he wouldn't have been selected once they ask him if he believes mystical forces are capable of murder.

I think it would have been OK if he had served. He would have the jury do stretch passes to get the verdict out in a hurry! :roll:

He wouldn't have considered the notion there was an alarm therefore there would have been no plan.

Wow, that is staggeringly shoddy journalism from whoever the heck Sean Leahy is, and slightly bad journalism from the PG. Jury duty requires one to show up at the courthouse for either one day or one trial. A large pool of people are all called up at once, randomly numbered, and run past the judges and lawyers in numerical order. Usually, multiple trials are all starting on the same day, so if you aren’t picked for trial A you may be screened again for trial B and so on until every jury panel is full. Prospective jurors can be excused by a judge for any number of personal reasons, including prior business commitments, family obligations, health, financial hardship, etc. Regardless of reason, people who haven’t been selected for duty at the end of the day are excused because they’ve put in their “one day.” Being excused from actually serving on a jury is a different thing than being excused from (or otherwise “ditching”) your obligation to show up and serve your one (very, very boring) day at the courthouse.

Also, they ask everyone if they want to donate the $9 pay for serving one day. If you donate, it goes into a fund that maintains the juror facilities (like stocking the coffee supplies and buying new furniture for the lounge). HCDB certainly didn’t “forfeit” the payment because he wasn’t picked.

None of the defendants had 'priors' therefore they couldn't possibly have had the skill or experience to commit the crime. They were, it seems, rookies. We can then surmise they were incapable of executing such a crime.
