What will happen if I do not show up for court as a witness?
If you have been summoned, you must attend court. If you have a conflict that cannot be rescheduled, you should immediately contact the State's Attorney's Office and ask to speak to the prosecutor handling the case or to a victim-witness specialist to discuss what options are available. If you are not excused and fail to come to court, then the judge will issue a writ calling for your arrest.
