Oprah Winfrey Reports for Jury Duty

By  | 

Authorities at the Cook County Criminal Court let the talk show host in through a special entrance Monday morning to avoid the crowds at the courthouse, but officials say she won't receive any other special treatment as she does her civic duty.

The billionaire will wait with about 300 other prospective jurors. A jury supervisor says even if Winfrey isn't picked for a jury by the end of the day she'll still receive a $17 check from the court for her time.
