I have been subpoenaed to appear in court as a witness in a criminal case. Can I get witness fees? What if I can't attend on the date stated on the subpoena?
Whether a witness receives any witness fee is within the discretion of the court. A court can order that you receive witness fees plus mileage. Notify the Assistant Prosecuting Attorney of your wishes to be paid the witness fee, and that Assistant Prosecutor will make sure your request gets forwarded appropriately.
If you have a date conflict you should email our Witness Coordinator, Barbara Haber-Grinnell at email@example.com, immediately to discuss your conflict.
