If you do not have felony conviction, you can serve on a jury. OWI's are felonies starting with the 5th offense or with the fourth under certain circumstances. Consult an experienced lawyer in your area.

    You probably will not be selected for service on a jury, however, you must obey any summons you get, show up, and let the administrator determine if you are eligible. Also, during vior dire of a potential juror, you should inform the parties that you had the DUI.
