Witness Information

        A fact witness is one who is subpoenaed to testify and recite facts or events in a particular matter before the Court. Serving as a witness in a court proceeding is a very important civic duty. The federal judicial system cannot function without the participation of witnesses. Complete cooperation and truthful testimony of witnesses is essential to the determination of the facts of the case. If you have been subpoenaed to appear as a witness in a federal court proceeding, you may have a number of questions regarding compensation of witness fees, transportation, directions to the courthouse, or other relevant details pertaining to your service as a witness. The Victim and Witness Assistance Program at the United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Florida has developed a brochure (linked below) which will answer many of these questions. If you have additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to phone the Victim Witness Coordinator or other contact person listed on your subpoena.
