Jesus Christ Kicked Off Jury

Story from AP:

Court officials say a Birmingham woman who changed her name to Jesus Christ didn’t live up to it when she reported for jury duty this week. The woman, previously named Dorothy Lola Killingworth, was sent to Judge Clyde Jones’s courtroom for a criminal case Monday.

Court officials told The Birmingham News Tuesday that the 59-year-old was excused because she was disruptive and kept asking questions instead of answering them.

Efforts to reach Christ for comment were unsuccessful.

“Effort to reach Christ were unsuccessful.” Isn’t that always the case?

  1. They “nailed” her during voir dire. Just as well, she’d likely have caused a “hung” jury. But I could see how dismissing her would be a “thorny” issue.

    Well, I don’t want to “flog” this to death.


  2. I wash my hands of the whole thing.


  3. Jesus…can I at least get a rim shot here?
