    Ok Recently i got a subpoena. It was left in my doorway. From what I have read if you are not properly served - you dont have to go. Properly means the server has to give the subpoena to an Adult in your household. If not, they have no proof you actually received the subpoena. Next this isnt my case, im a witness, and i dont want to go.

    Anyone have any experiences or info to share? I really hope I dont get a warrant or anything like that.

    i think that they in fact do need to personally give it to you.

    wait it out and see what happens.

    yeah I wouldn't be too worried, if they just left it on the doorstep it could've blown away in the wind for all you know.

    Go and make up some bullshit story to get everybody involved in the case put in prison. That'll teach the fuckers to subpoena you.

    throw it in a gutter somewhere, if it was left on your doorstep it never reached your possession.

    I believe that you are legally obliged to appear if you've been given a subpoena...

    It's not like the lawyer called you and asked if you could speak..

    You can be arrested and held in contempt if you don't reply..

    If you have nothing to say, just plead the 5th..

    What I would do is call the defence lawyer and see what they've to say before anything else...

    Also if you go, you can't "plead the 5th", they'll lock you up for contempt of court indefinately until you fold.
    Then if you fold you're a snitch!

    im pretty sure something like that would be an infringment on your Charter Rights....how the hell do they charge you, get a case against you, are ready to proceed, and you have no idea that all this is going on, and ytou have to legally defend yourself?


    oh wait your in the states eh
