Court Question
    #1364529 - 03/11/03 04:03 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

If I got subpoenaed to appear in court, but I am on the prosecuting side.. am I still required to go? I was in a car accident as a passenger, and I got a subpoena, but I don't think I can make it to the court as I am working that day and it is in the next state.

My understanding is that a subpoena requires you to be there. Failure to appear routinely results in the issue of a warrant for your arrest.

Try contacting the person who sent you the subpoena and see if something can be worked out.

Happy mushrooming!

That's what I thought too.. then I thought that's only the case if you are the defendant. Guess I'll call the court and see if I have to go.

ToxicMan is right as usual.

You will have to go. If they issued you a subpoena they are serious about you being there.

Good luck!

There are limits as to what a subpeona can require a person to do. Each state is different. I know that in my state if you live more than a certain distance away, like 100 miles, you don't actually have to go. I know from personal experience as I wanted to subpeona some folks and found out they didn't have to go. I didn't tell them that and they thought they did anyway so it worked out for me....

AND I don't believe they issue a warrant for arrest but rather cite you for contempt of court which could result in jail time, fines or both....

Your work has to let you go or the government rips them a new ass
