Douglas Maupin was released from the Collin County Jail today after serving 83 days for missing jury duty.
Maupin, 34, was caught up in the legal system and didn’t have a court date set for almost three months until he wrote to The Dallas Morning News.
A judge, who was notified by the paper on Friday about the situation, held a late afternoon hearing to handle Maupin’s case.
Meanwhile, a municipal judge in Arlington allowed his time served to apply to two minor traffic tickets in that city.
It was unclear what time Maupin was released.
I did the no reply/no show, recevied a notice giving me 30 days to contact the court or there would be a bench warrant issued!
