California just made it easier for witnesses to be served with subpoenas.
Prior to 2020, subpoenas had to be served either personally to the witness, or through the mail or messenger service. Starting in 2020, SB 471 makes it possible for a witness in a criminal case to be served by fax or electronically. If you have witnessed a crime, you may soon find an order to appear in court and testify finding its way into your email inbox.
Avoiding a subpoena is a crime under California law, but even witnesses are entitled to the assistance of an attorney. If you have been subpoenaed to be a witness in a criminal case, you should speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney about your options.
