Do I have to attended court hearings?

Generally, court hearings are open to the public and you can choose to attend any hearing that you would like. If you receive a subpoena, which is an order of the court, you will be required to attend the hearing for the date on the subpoena to testify. Victim Assistance Specialists are available to escort or accompany you to the courtroom and explain the proceedings if you wish.
