Depends on the trial, honestly.
46, I don't know how jury duty works where you are, but when I went in for jury duty, they don't know what case the jurors might sit for until the judge requests a jury pool, which wasn't till 11:30 for me. Even if you get pulled for a jury pool early, if you aren't selected for that jury, you still have to wait for them to dismiss you (somewhere between 2 and 5 pm depending on how busy the courthouse is that day).
Well, I am from a small town. I haven't been called for duty, but with the exception of one major case (rape trial, very unusual from around here), all of my friends and family who have been called have been either done or have known they're sitting by around noon. I should have realized my experience isn't typical.
There are a million ways to get out of jury duty if push comes to shove just say you're racist...Even better if it's your own race so you got a little crazy going for you too haha
Ditch it. Wedding is more important
