    Two Year Old Summoned For Jury Duty

    Jan 16, 10:45 AM (ET)

    NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) - Kaylee Reynolds had a problem when she recently received a summons to serve on a jury. She wasn't old enough to read it.

    The 2-year-old has quite a few years to go before she reaches the minimum age of 18 to serve on a state jury. Lucky for Kaylee, Massachusetts Jury Commissioner Patricia Reynolds seemed willing to let it slide for a while.

    "We'll give her a 16-year grace period," Wood told The Standard-Times of New Bedford.

    Wood guessed the mix-up could be traced to a local census form. If the form has a blank or mistaken birth date, July 4, 1776 is filled in.

    "With that date we'll know it is wrong," Wood said.

    Besides her questionable understanding of the concepts of guilt or innocence, there are other reasons why it's best to wait for Kaylee to serve. Her mother, Patricia, says Kaylee gets really cranky if she doesn't get her noontime nap.

    I can just see it now. Kaylee shaking her pacifier at the defendant and saying, 'phm twog em... prie!'. Translation: 'You caused me to miss my nap... Guilty!'
