The Northern District of Georgia takes no show jurors very seriously. You will first be sent a letter to show cause as to why you did not appear. If we do not hear from you, we will then send you an order to appear at a hearing and explain before a judge the reason for your delinquency. The ultimate penalty could be $1000.00 fine, three (3) days in jail, community service or a combination thereof.
