Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Bravo on your efforts to move forward pro se - you can have the subpoena duces tecum issued via the clerk of the court - they should have the form for you to fill out and can then direct you in the proper way to make service - you will need to know exactly which documents or papers you need, since Subpoena Duces Tecum must be served with a copy of a declaration describing the documents you need. The declaration is part of the subpoena that the clerk will give you.
Best of success to you in this matter,
Your subpoena should come from the Appeals court since you are at that level in the process - you should contact the clerk of the appeals court and seek the form for the supponea - The court does not have the evidence in their files - it would be back with the prosecutor's office or in some other storage facility. You might want to check with the lower court and see who now has custody of the evidence - and proceed from there.
Re your feedback - we cannot speak on the phone - this is the only medium for guidance and suggestions.
Thank you ~ Michelle
