The case for which I had jury duty.

For the second time in two years, I got tagged for jury duty. Last week I spent Monday and Tuesday at the court house while a jury was picked for a criminal case. I never did get chosen since all 12 plus an alternate were seated before I got called from the jury pool. I found the case disposition online today.

DA's Office Convicts Two Habitual Felons

Both Defendants Found Guilty Of Eluding Deputies
A Johnston County man was sentenced to 80 to 105 months in jail on Wednesday after being found guilty by a Johnston County jury of speeding to elude arrest during a chase with Johnston County deputies. Jimmie Wayne Banks attempted to avoid a traffic stop by Deputy David Hildreth. Banks drover his car at a high rate of speed several times around a CVS Pharmacy parking then onto Highway 42 and Cleveland School Road before crashing and overturning his car. Banks had previous convictions for felony possession of cocaine and felony assault inflicting serious bodily injury.
