I received a subpoena to appear in court. What does that mean?

A subpoena is a court order requiring you to appear in court at the stated date and time.  If you receive a subpoena, it is typically because you are a witness or a victim to an alleged crime.  If you need more information about the subpoena you may contact the Court Clerk's Office or the City Prosecutor.  If you cannot appear in court at the required date and time, you must contact the City Prosecutor as soon as possible.  Only the City Prosecutor can release you from a subpoena.
