If you want to get out of jury duty, try telling the judge, “I had a close friend in high school who killed 17 people.” It worked for John Backderf. When asked by the judge if he’d ever known anyone convicted of a crime, Backderf mentioned his boyhood pal, Jeffrey Dahmer. He was immediately excused. And you thought you had to lie about having had a vacation planned for the dates of the trial.
