Trial Information

A trial is a hearing before a judge or jury during which evidence is presented and a decision is made about guilt or innocence. 


You have the right to subpoena witnesses to testify at trial on your behalf. Please request any subpoenas at the violations bureau counter two weeks before your trial date. If a witness is not placed under subpoena and does not appear in court at the time of trial, a judge is not likely to grant a continuance for that person to be properly subpoenaed.


Please see additional information for individuals representing themselves:
