Default Do have to testify if I was a witness to a car accident?

Do have to testify if I was a witness to a car accident?

I was in the car behind and the officer has my name and so does the Defendant which is the one that wants me there at court? I do not want to go.

If you received a subpoena yes, you have to go.

The only time you will ever be forced to testify is if you are subject to a subpoena. A subpoena is an order issued by the court that requires the recipient to produce evidence that is relevant to the case at issue, whether that is the production of physical evidence or testifying as a witness. Subpoenas for witness testimony are generally issued in cases where the testimony will be very important to the party who requests it but the witness is hesitant or unwilling to testify. If you are subpoenaed, you have the right to object to the subpoena if you feel that it is unfair or unjust or if it would be extremely difficult to appear at the time requested by the subpoena. If the court dismisses your objections, it then becomes mandatory for you to do as the subpoena requests.

Thank you everybody! That helps!

No subpoena yet just lots of pressure from the D's to agree to do it.

I guess they don't want to force me with a subpoena, for whatever reason.

What's the case, why are you afraid to testify?

Ignore a subpoena and you’ll find out how incorrect you are.

blah blah till the sheriffs cuff you and drag you to jail, and then to court.

I wouldn't recommend saying blah blah at that point.
