You've got mail

Today, after moving back in with my parents, I found out they had held on to a chunk of mail still being sent during the time I had been changing my old address. Included was a summons to jury duty. FML

Unless it works way differently in Texas than California, mail it back to the court with a letter of explanation, and they will just assign you a new date to appear.

Yikes! I hope you're not in too much trouble. I am surprised they didn't forward something that important to you. Good luck.

Sounds like Jur in trouble.

Might as well have just said "sounds like jury-n trouble" if you are going to try to make a pun..

hang in there OP, that just happened to my friend except he was called to court for a traffic ticket, but his parents didn't give the letter to him until a week after he was suppose to appear

And what happened? We all wan't know!

I don't know... It sounds like a cover story to me.

There is nothing similar about the government's of Texas and California

#9, it's the same government.

14, Federally, yes. State-level not as much.

you are able to do this in Texas as well, I've had to on a couple of occasions

I would message them back as soon as possible. You can't play with them. I wish they would go more digital though. Mail is not easy to keep track of for everyone.

email is not easy to keep track of at all

Eh a warrant and 6months worth of back fines never got anybody locked up for to long!

I would call the number and explain what happened, but you may still go before a clerk magistrate to decide whether they decide to go forward with charges. Bring one of your parents as a witness to that maybe they will just throw it out.
