The subpoena was supposed to fade out today since there was a continuance. However the prosecutor made me swear in with the judge. Can this be quashed still or not? Please let me know. Thank you.
If you were sworn in as a witness in a case, and the judge told you that you need to return, then you need to return, or risk contempt of court, which could mean jail time for you. Talk to an attorney in the Houston area for more information. You would have to hire an attorney to quash a subpoena, and I don't a criminal subpoena can be quashed. Again, talk to an attorney in the Houston area.
It is no longer a subpoena. Now it is a court order. Only the judge making a different order could change the current order. Unless you are under going an organ transplant or similar on that date- I wouldn’t expect the Judge to release you.
Accepting cases in Dallas, Denton, Collin and Tarrant Counties. THIS IS GENERAL ADVICE AND DOES NOT REPLACE A PERSONAL CONSULTATION WITH AN ATTORNEY AND DOES NOT ESTABLISH AN ATTORNEY/CLIENT RELATIONSHIP
