Maryland Governor Summoned To Jury Duty, But Not Chosen

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has been released from jury duty.

Hogan waited for more than two hours on Wednesday morning at the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court, where he had been summoned.

The 57-year-old Republican had been summoned to jury duty for his first time in January, but it was on the same day as his inauguration. Maryland’s constitution required that he be sworn in as governor at noon that day, so the summons was deferred and he was called back.

I don't see how a sitting governor could be called for jury duty,suppose there was disaster that required his attention and it was in the middle of a month long murder trial?

Guess you would have no shot at a pardon if found guilty.
