I know there are penalties for ignoring the jury summons, but what about missing the summons letter entirely?
By missing, I mean not being present for both the initial letter and the actual date of the jury panel. Hence, it was not physically possible to appear since the person would have no knowledge of the summons.
Also, if being absent does change the legality of the matter, what would count as sufficient evidence? (If this is a separate question I will remove it)
Disclosure: This did happen to me, in Canada.
