Georgia juror form reportedly lists 'slave' as occupation

Georgia's DeKalb County Court says it's trying to figure out how the word "slave" turned up as an occupation on its juror questionnaire.

11Alive.com reports that the word was removed from the court's online questionnaire after a potential juror filling out the form hit the letter "s" for sales and got "slave" instead.

Court Administrator Cathy McCumber told the station that the questionnaire went live a month ago, but is based off an internal list that has been used for 13 years.

"That is not an occupation, slave is not an occupation," DeKalb resident Cheryl Glass said.

According to McCumber, the word was removed shortly after it was brought to the attention of court officials. The company that designed the software said the occupations are generated by users, 11Alive.com reported.
