In late September 2009, I received a summons for jury duty for Cochise County in Arizona where my wife and I reside. I informed my supervisor and my site lead and then on the morning of the 28th I drove to the Cochise County Superior Courthouse to report for jury duty. Upon arrival I was placed into a room with the other prospective jurors. We were then taken across the street to the courtroom and were told to find seating by the bailiff. About 10 minutes after that the Judge came into the room and announced to us for what we were summoned, to pick a jury of 12 + 2 alternates for a murder trial.
