1 Failure to Attend as Witness on Mon May 08, 2017 8:26 pm


Arresto Menor
I had a case filed against my brother for grave threat but I have already withdrew the case. Apparently, another case was filed against him for possession of firearms related to the grave threat and I am being called in as a witness. Do I still have to attend the hearing? What will happen if I do not attend?

You may be cited for in contempt if you do not have a valid reason for your absence.

A sub poena may be requested by the proponent and if you do not comply a bench warrant may be issued against you to have you arrested until you comply with the order of the court.
