I would like the judge and court to consider me a better person so would attending Jury duty help me in that way? Also how can this impact my DUI case?
DUI trials typically do not involve evidence of a defendant's good character. Good character evidence is more relevant for explaining why you should receive a more lenient sentence after you have been found guilty. You need to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney to discuss your case.
You need to attend the jury selection because it is a legal summons. As far as a trial for a DUI, those don't involve good character. The sentencing portion (if you are convicted) will involve a statement about your character in regards to the sentence. However, that involves job history and criminal history, not jury duty.
