Just don't register to vote and you never get called in the first place.

Or write them back two words: "Jury Nullification" - they'll probably forget you exist.

The last request I received for jury duty was in 2007.

I use to receive them yearly and simply checked the box that I had a child under the age of ... whatever it required them to be to get out of jury duty.

Coincidentally 2007 was when my drivers license expired and I never renewed it.

I tried renewing it four times and failed.

1st time I tried online, only to be informed that they needed an updated image of me.

2nd time I tried at the DMV. I stood in line for 30 minutes to be informed their system was now down.

3rd time I waited too long to come back (because ... fuck them for wasting my time twice) to try again and was informed I now needed to retake the drivers test, but there was no one available to give me the drivers test.

4th time I waited in line for nearly an hour to be told there was no one available to give me the drivers test.

So I gave up and never looked back, even while driving. ;)

I'll pay the $200+ fine instead IF they ever pull me over again, which is highly unlikely where I drive.

And knowing most of the Sheriff's in my area ... who are either taking kickbacks from local drug dealers or just look the other way unless you've shot someone ... they'll let me go with a warning.

Helping someone to kill himself. Maybe in some countries it's even illegal to end ones own life, I don't want to look it up now. I hope it meets all of your points.

Just keep $50 in your glovebox, and offer it instead of your id when you get pulled over. Every cop will be happy for this bargain :)

For participating in this BM-Sponsored Quest you have obviously saved bm time by providing valuable input (thus saving him time to have to search himself...leaving him far more time to code, but still with the knowledge that he can accomplish other important tasks at the same time--because he can trust delegating this job to you, the community members). 

For that, I am handing out BMs DKP, Brownies, to those who actively participated in helping this discussion remain productive. Thank you for that.

it's a little harder.
Don't register to vote, don't register a vehicle or get a driver's license, don't have a job that requires a W4 (don't pay taxes), and don't receive any federal or state assistance (unemployment benefits)

As an academic discussion, medicinal marijuana is probably one of the better examples, except the penalty is not financial.

It's hard to find examples where there is public sympathy for the offender, because usually those laws are "corrected" in a timely fashion.

Right now there is no sympathy for white-collar financial crimes or securities (not much love for the 1%ers, which is what they will be labeled as whether or not they are), but if a "Mom and Pop Pizza Shop Kickstarter" got pulled down by the SEC, there would be public sympathy for that. There is little sympathy for bitcoin crimes, since bitcoin is that thing criminals use to launder drug money to terrorist (according to public perception) or what you have to pay in if your computer is held ransom.

Medical marijuana has more and more public sympathy. Mainstream media has specials about medicinal marijuana where they try to make it personal and show it different than other drug offenses. In general, there is still little public sympathy for drug offenses, although more people are thinking that mandatory sentencing in some instances may be counter productive

Definitely luck. I am not US citizen and I am not eligible to vote, but I receive these requests to be jury 2-3 times per year. I am tired to tell them that I am not US citizen.

I got called just once.
I explained, when asked, that I was an engineering manager.
I was politely dismissed.
Haven't been called back since.

Oh, that is why they keep calling me, although they know that I can't be a jury according to their own rules. You guys, who are eligible for this just skip your duties and your government press my ass because they need to fill their gap somehow. :)
