Does this sound like your topic?
I have three misdemeanors against me in a village court. One for criminal mischief (kicking a garbage can) and two for contempt for disobeying a temporary protective order (the criminal mischief and then asking the petitioner for a peaceful resolution).
If there was a non-jury trial and she didn't show up even though she was subpoenaed what is the worse that could happen to her? A fine? If so, how much?
The DA would need her as a witness.
I'd rather not have a misdemeanor on my record but I could also just plead to one misdemeanor and probably walk away. Is it worth it for me to see if the she would be amenable to helping me? I don;t want to get her in trouble.
