Let’s face it, we all hate getting called to jury duty. We all have heard all the creative ways to get out of it. A 29-year-old Florida resident Jacob Jock took it a bit too far when he decided to send a Facebook friend request to the defendant hoping this would lead to a dismissal.

The good news for Jacob – he was dismissed from the jury. The bad news is he got three days in jail after being found to be in criminal contempt of court. In retrospect, it was probably a bad idea to post the following on Facebook after getting out of jury duty,

“Score … I got dismissed!! apparently they frown upon sending a friend request to the defendant … haha.”

While serving his three-day sentence, we pray that Jacob doesn’t get ‘Poked’ by any new friends he meets in the system.
