Keegan Kelley Harroz's answer
For a subpoena to be valid, you have to be served personally. This means that you signed for certified mail containing the subpoena or you were served by a law enforcement officer or you were served by a private process server.

If you are properly served with a subpoena, you are required by law to appear unless you are the victim of the crime. However, if you are the victim of the crime, you have the legal right to refuse to appear to testify.

The legal presumption is that if someone bonds out, they are capable of hiring an attorney. You need to fill out a public defender application and present it to the judge. Bring proof of your son's disability with you. The judge decides whether or not you can afford an attorney.
