Do I have to bring anything along?
If there are no specific instructions on your subpoena or from the Prosecutors’ Office or the Victim Assistance Program, it is not necessary to bring anything. It is okay if you want to bring a book, homework, etc., to keep yourself occupied when you are not in the courtroom. It is difficult to estimate how long everything will take, so it is better to be prepared.
