People have tried almost every trick in the book to get out of jury duty.
But, dressing up as a prisoner to get dismissed from jury duty is definitely a novel idea. James Lowe, of Barnet, Vermont, was summoned for jury duty on Tuesday. Unlike most people, he showed up wearing a prisoner costume! He had on a black and white striped jumpsuit and matching beanie.
We don't know if he did so hoping to get out of jury duty, but, apparently, it worked.
