Jury Scam Warning

Please be advised that there is currently a person calling at random and stating to the person called that they have failed to report to Jury Duty in Alachua County and there is now a warrant out for their arrest. The person states that in order to clear the warrant, you must go to Dollar General and pay $500 for a voucher and that you will receive another court date at a later point in time. Please note that this is a SCAM and you should NOT follow those directions. The person has identified himself as Deputy Phillips to some. If you have received a phone call such as this and have further details to provide, please contact Court Administration at (352) 374-3638. If you ever have any questions related to Jury Duty, you can call our Jury Information Line directly at (352) 337-6238.
