What do I do if I receive a subpoena to testify?
To determine whether your testimony will be needed, you should call the Lake County State’s Attorney's Office at 847-377-3000 and speak to either the prosecutor or the victim witness assistance coordinator assigned to the case or courtroom. When you call, have the subpoena with you because it contains the defendant’s name, case number, courtroom, and other important information. If you are needed to testify, the State’s Attorney’s Office will work with you as best possible to keep to a minimum your time away from work, school, or other obligations. If you receive a subpoena and do not make direct contact with the prosecutor or assigned coordinator, then you must appear at the date and time the subpoena indicates.
