There’s an interesting story in today’s edition about lawyers in a murder case arguing over whether RVers with South Dakota addresses should be included in a jury pool. One of the lawyers made the point that if these year-round travelers are going to get the benefits of a South Dakota address, i.e. cheap vehicle licensing, a place to vote, etc., they should also have to serve jury duty when the time comes.
I must say that I agree. If an RVer and I both have a South Dakota address, why should I have to serve jury duty while the RVer gets a free pass?
I’ll be interested in your thoughts on the issue.
