What happens if you don't go to jury duty?

I went to jury duty this morning and the judge said that the people that had ignored their summons and didn't show up would have warrants put out for their arrest. They would then be either fined or jailed. The judge thanked those of us that did show up and told us that we had saved ourselves quite a bit of misery for the minor inconvenience incurred to hear one case. My suggestion is to show up if you get one. :)
