Failure to Appear

Q: What if I have been summoned for jury duty but I decide not to report for service?

You may be held in contempt of court and you can be fined for failing to respond to a jury service summons.

Pursuant to K.S.A. 43-165, any person who is duly summoned to appear as a juror and who fails to appear without a sufficient excuse shall be subject to a fine not to exceed one hundred dollars ($100) per day for each unexcused absence.
