    Default Man faces jail time for being stay-at-home dad

    MASON, Ohio. An Ohio man could face up to six months in jail for missing jury duty in favor of his duties as a stay-at-home dad.

    Jeff Bloebaum has been held in contempt of court for failing to report for jury duty in October. He told ABC News affiliate WCPO-TV in Cincinnati that he wrote a letter and made two phone calls to Mason Muncipal Court explaining he couldn't report for jury service because he cares for his 2-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter. A clerk, Bloebaum said, told him the matter would be taken care of.

    However, on Nov. 15, Bloebaum said he received a letter informing him that he would be held in contempt of court because he made no effort to provide an excuse for missing jury duty.

    Mason Clerk of Courts Bill Scherpenberg said Bloebaum didn't supply enough details in his letter explaining his circumstances. But Bloebaum said he thought his obligation to care for his two young children was a sufficient explanation.

    "I just assumed that taking care of my kids [was enough]," he told The Cincinnati Enquirer.

    Bloebaum's case comes as a proposed state law that would allow stay-at-home parents like him to put off jury duty appears headed for defeat in the Ohio legislature.

    Ole Dubya gets out of jury duty because he needs to watch Cheney run the country. I think this guy needing to watch his kids is way more important.
