Healy avoid jury duty for World Cup win
We're sure the Sheriff's department has heard some interesting excuses to get out of jury duty.
There would be some pretty inventive ones given the fine is up to $2200 if you don't report to the court.
Australia's World Cup hero Alyssa Healy is hoping to strike a patriotic chord with someone in the justice department.
The opening batsman and wicketkeeper missed her calling for jury duty because she was busy winning the T20 crown.
Just emailed a photo of our World Cup celebrations to the Sheriff to explain my failure to attend Jury Duty.....acceptable?— Alyssa Healy (@ahealy77) March 29, 2020
Over the weekend Healy decided the best course of action was to send evidence which she explained on Twitter.
"Just emailed a photo of our World Cup celebrations to the Sheriff to explain my failure to attend Jury Duty.....acceptable?"
We're tipping she's got a few witnesses who could also vouch for her whereabouts if required.
