Question: If I Have Been Subpoenaed to Testify, Do I Have to Go?
Answer: A subpoena is actually a court order telling you to appear at a legal proceeding, so you must appear at the place and time designated on the subpoena. If you fail to appear as ordered by the subpoena, you may be found in contempt of court and sanctioned with jail time and fines. What Can I Do If I Really Cannot Appear at the Time Designated by the Subpoena? You may contact the attorney issuing the subpoena by phone or in a written letter requesting the City to file a motion to continue with the court to reschedule the hearing. There are narrow deadlines for filing a continuance with the court so please be mindful that it could take several weeks to process. Disclaimer: Although the City tries to accommodate victims and witnesses in criminal proceedings, requesting a continuance is left to the discretion of the Prosecutor and your request may be denied.

Question: Can I speak with a Prosecuting Attorney before I come to Court?
Answer: Do you have a court appointed attorney or have hired an attorney? If so, your lawyer represents you. The prosecutor represents the St. George City. It would be unethical for the prosecutor to speak directly with you about any situation regarding your case. For your protection, the prosecution isn't allowed to talk to you without your attorney present. Whatever you need to communicate to the prosecutor can be done by your attorney. Are you a defendant? If you are a defendant with a traffic ticket, it is necessary to wait for the Pre-Trial date issued by the Court before speaking to a Prosecuting Attorney. If I am the parent of a Defendant, can I speak to the Prosecuting Attorney? That depends. If the Defendant over the age of 18 (as of today's date) and graduated from High School then No. Your son and/or daughter are of legal age and the prosecutor can only speak to them or their attorney regarding their allegations. If the Defendant is currently 18 years old or younger and still in High School then the prosecuting attorney may speak to the parents as long as the Defendant is on the phone with them.
Question: Can the City Attorney's Office represent private citizens who do not have funds to hire a private attorney?
