Cat, Sal Esposito, Called To Jury Duty In Boston (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Boston resident Sal Esposito recently got called in for jury duty. He might have some problems performing this required task, though, as Sal is a cat.

The problem arose after owners Anna and Guy Esposito listed him on the last U.S. Census under "pet."

Anna filed for his disqualification of service. He was not "too old," "ill," or a "convicted felon," so she filed that he "cannot speak English."

The jury commissioner denied this request.

According to WHDH Local News, Sal was still expected at Suffolk Superior Court on March 23.

The following video from details the report.
