3.1 REQUESTING A SUBPOENA TO BE ISSUED
To request issuance of a subpoena(s), defendants must make that request to the clerks’ office at least three weeks before trial.

Before the court can issue a subpoena, the request must include the name, address and telephone number of the witness. If you want the witness to bring evidence with him or her, you must specify the item the witness is to bring.
When the court serves a subpoena and the defendant is convicted, a $5.00 fee is added as costs of the court.
