SUBPOENAS & WARRANTS
A subpoena is a court order that requires a person to appear in court to give testimony or to present documents and related articles to be produced as evidence at a hearing. The Municipal Prosecutor may also ask a witness to appear voluntarily without serving a subpoena.
If you have received a subpoena, you must appear on the date listed. Failing to follow a subpoena is considered contempt of court.
If you fail to appear on your court date or comply with the court’s orders, the municipal court judge may issue a warrant for your arrest or suspend your driver’s license.
