For you to be "served" with a subpoena means that somebody, usually a Sheriff's Deputy, must actually serve you with a subpoena. If you get the subpoena in some other way--say, you get it mailed to you, or you talk to somebody on the phone--is NOT a way of getting "served" if you are a witness in a criminal case.
