I used to work in the Crown Court. You should write to them immediately explaining that 7 weeks away from your business will cause serious consequences which may even result in your business folding due to losing customers. Put plenty of detail in your letter. I would phone them as well. Also have a word with the jury manager when you first arrive at court. Hopefully the court will be sympathetic to your position.

think this is the only good part of having a criminal record...........NO JURY SERVICE lol

 

only if you`ve done more than a 5 year jail sentence will you be disqualified for life.

 

less than 5 years in prision or from offence date 10 years disqualified.

 

If your crackers this will also disqualify you so most window cleaners should be fine!! haha

I just got called up, but have sent thd forms back to try and defer it till winter. Told them just started new business etc fingers crossed.

 

But 7 weeks would be a killer, good luck!

Thankfully for me I got mine out of the way last year. Can refuse to do it again if they ask, which is only fair I guess. It's quite interesting if you get a decent case, but the hanging around gets very tedious!
