(Newser) – Adventures in jury duty, from Denver's 9News.com:

  • Understandable: Susan Cole, 57, really wanted to get out of jury duty.
  • Going a little too far: She showed up in curlers and mismatched shoes and generally acted like a crazy person.
  • Lucky: It worked! She got out of jury duty.
  • Unwise: She bragged about her ploy to a local radio station.
  • Unlucky: The judge who dismissed her from jury duty was listening to said radio station.
  • Consequences: Cole is charged with perjury.
  • Good question: "I am embarrassed I did it," she says. "What if I go to prison for this?"
