's second suggestion may not be as sure a thing
as the prospective jury-dodger
Consider Barbara Adams (or Federation Officer Lt. Commander Barbara Adams, as she prefers to be known). She is famous not only for being a jurist for one of the Whitewater trials in Arkansas, but for continuing to wear her Starfleet uniform and phaser (and persona(!)) while she performed her civic duties. To her credit it must be said that by all accounts, she took her assignment with all due seriousness; definitely more seriousness than the press did.
