Can a victim go to jail for not showing up to court in South Carolina?

Spartanburg, SC |

My ex boyfriend went to jail for CDV and I was the victim. We went to court a few months ago and he asked for a jury trial. I have received a summons to appear in court again and can't miss work.

  1. They may have a bailiff come to your job or your home. May.


  2. Do you mean that you were subpoenaed, or that you received a copy of the Defendant's summons so as to alert you to his next court date?
