Attention Shoppers: Please Report For Jury Duty

"A Vermont judge sent his sheriff to the mall to round up a jury that could fairly try a child molester."

"They stopped passers-by and asked if they were residents of Caledonia County; a "yes" answer won a summons to appear at the courthouse for jury duty immediately, right now, this minute. They rounded up 45 people that way in all, to join the 34 already at the courthouse."

Deputies were also dispatched to the local post office and supermarket."
