  • NEED HELP! Subphoena for witness!!

    Two years ago I was involved in an attack at a movie theatre where me and my friend were injured with knives! Since then I have moved on since day one never planning to go to court for it and just drop it! I got a call from the investagating officer a month ago saying I wouldnt have to go to court if I didnt chose to but then earlier today the prosecuting officer said that I would get a subphoena and have to go and if not a warrant would be issued for me!!! But she doesnt have my address and she says that if I dont give it to her she can file the sobphoena to my parents (who I dont live with and am 22 years old)

    I really dont want to go for safety and personal issues!! Is this true or is she bull****ting me to try and get me to give in and go?? Am I required as a witness by law?? And if I dont give her my address can a sobpheona legally be given to my parents?? And if I do not recieve a sobphoena will a warrant be issued apon me not attending???

    Thanks in advance for help!!!

    If you get a subpoena served on you, and don't attend then they can ask the court to order you to attend. If you dont, then the court can act and can even issue a warrant.

    You may want to tell the DA you will not be a very good witness in your opinion.

      to further elaborate: I am in the usa right now dealing with immigration stuff so I can stay with my husband and once i started I cant leave without a travel document! I could argue that I wouldnt be a good witness but I am one of the only witnesses and I was involved!!

      My basic question is this lawyer bull****ting me by telling me I have to give her my address so a sobphoena can be served, and if not it will be served through my parents who I dont live with and I am an adult.....?

        You need not communicate--they must find and serve you.

            Most courts will not accept that if you are not living there; tell them to send it back to the court.

                I wasnt sure where to put this thread, but Im trying to find some info on the rules of serving a subpoena. We just encountered something that I would assume is against the law in itself, but I need to prove it before I go forward. Thanks

                  Your local court has a copy of the local rules and state rules that govern it.
