I have been away at school for some time and did file some papers at our local court house telling them that I was at school in another county of the state. I guess that the filed papers worked for a few years, though this summer I started to get letters calling me for jury duty. Though I could not go, as I was away at school. My parent sent the count house around 5 letters explaining this to them, and we know that they got them as they were certified. Though even though we sent the letters, they continued to send the letters calling me for duty. I am home now and got a non-compliance letter two days ago, telling me that I have committed a crime and that I must attend the court house and see a judge. The letter also says I must pay a $250 fine, though that is up to the judge to finalize the amount.
Have any of your children experience this before? What should I do? I searched online and most sources claimed that, the court really doesn't care where I was. I haven't lived in the house for nearly 4.5 years.
