Wrong Number on Jury Summons Has People Calling Sex Hotline


For many people, reporting for jury duty isn't always the most stimulating activity.

But some potential jurors got the shock of a lifetime after receiving a summons, ordering them to call what turned out to be a sex hotline.

A court in Mississippi screwed up the number on the summonses, which were sent out to roughly 350 people. Instead of finding out if they needed to come to court for jury selection, the people ended up calling the sex line.

If they called the number, they'd reach a recorded message telling them, "For hot girls, press 1. For hot guys, press 2."

The court is investigating how the error happened, and whether it was an accident or some kind of prank.

They're also sending apology letters to the people who received the summonses.

Now it's just a waiting game to see how many of them use "emotional distress from accidentally calling a sex line" as an excuse to get out of jury duty.
