Will I have to go to court?
You may or may not have to go to court, depending on a number of circumstances. Your cooperation as the victim or witness of a crime is critical to a successful prosecution. If you are the victim of a crime but do not wish to appear in court, criminal charges are likely to be dropped. If you are required to appear in court you will receive a subpoena from the District Attorney’s Office advising you where and when you need to be at court.
