    The type of case you are involved in will determine what could happen if you donít attend court as a witness. Even if you donít think you have any evidence to give to the court, this isnít your decision to make. The person that is bringing the court case will have a solicitor who will decide whether you should attend court to give whatever evidence they think you have that is pertinent to the case.

    Generally speaking you should not have any serious consequences if you donít actually attend the court. However, it may be the case that if you donít attend and you have not informed the police or the PPS (Public Prosecution Service) that you wonít be attending, a witness summons may be issued. If this happens you are compelled to attend the court on the stated time and date. If you fail to attend the court after a witness summons has been issued, a warrant for your arrest would then be granted.

    My girlfriend was a witness when her mates car got smashed up and she thought the case was at the end of September when it was actually the beginning. She got another summons for it and this is at the start of December but she had to go today to explain why she didn't attend the first date.

    She said she'll find out whats going to happen when she attends in December

    yep the court will want to know why she did not attend.

    poor show really by the cps and and police oic (officer in the case) as they should contact the witness PRIOR to the court case to run through what happens and what to expect - and again remind on the date and time of the case and arrange any transportation issues
