A subpoena is a command to appear at a certain time and place to give testimony on a certain case.
We mail subpoenas to individuals listed on police reports and who are important to prove a case.
If you do not appear, the Court could issue a warrant for your arrest and/or hold you in contempt of court.
All subpoenas from the Prosecutor’s Office have instructions printed on the back. Please read and follow the instructions carefully. Bring your subpoena with you to court.
If you cannot appear at
the time listed on the subpoena, please contact our office here. We will review your request, but
unless you receive a new subpoena or hear from our office, you are still
required to follow the instructions on the subpoena.
If you have lost your subpoena, you can contact our office at 425-257-8406 for us to mail you a new one or you will still need to call the witness list at 425-257-8515 or here anytime after 5 p.m. the Friday before the trial date, for a final list of upcoming trials; if the DEFENDANT is listed you need to appear at Everett Municipal Court at 8:10 a.m. on the trial date. If you do not hear the name of the defendant, you do not need to appear.
Please keep our office informed of any address changes or if you have suffered any damages as a result of an incident. Please contact our office at 425-257-8406.
Court dates are frequently changed for criminal cases. When this occurs, you will receive an updated subpoena with the new court date.
If you have any more information regarding a case, please contact the Everett Police Department.
