Trial is set for 1/29/13, a critical witness has been sent a subpoena on 1/24, however it reads unserved on the counties website. What happens if this witness does not receive the subpoena? It is returned unserved to the court? What happens with the trial?
I know if the states witnesses are not ready or available, they reset the trial, what is the justice for the defensse?
Your attorney is in the best position to answer this question. Just because the return isn't showing on the system yet doesn't mean the witness hasn't been served. If you are unable to execute service, you may or may not be granted a continuance. It's at the judge's discretion.
