Q: charged with saleuse of paraphernalia and furnishing the place/liquor. this charge was when i was 17, but my court-

-date is the day after my 18th birthday. how will i be charged? this is my first time getting a summons. i am so nervous

Hunter J Tzovarras answered on Jul 11, 2019

If it occurred before you turned 18 and is a criminal charge, you'd be charged as a minor, not adult. If it is not a criminal charge, but a civil violation, it is not a criminal charge and the age does not matter. I hope this helps. Thanks

Q: How do I subpoena a witness? How many days before trial does witness need?

You need to get a subpoena from the clerk of the court and serve it on the witness. The sheriff will serve it for a fee. There is no timeframe for serving it before trial but the sooner the better usually. Thanks
