Court Question
    #1364529 - 03/11/03 04:03 AM (13 years, 8 months 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....
