I received a voicemail saying I am being subpoenaed... But nothing else in writing anywhere. Can a subpoena being issued via voicemail?
Also I am out of state and just started a new job... Is it possible to speak to someone to letthem know i ddon't know anything andidn't have to travel and get off work?
I received three voicemails in one day but nothing in writing what do you recommend?
If I was being charged with something or suspected of something would they just issue a subpoena? Or what else would they do?
Should I get an attorney before I receive the subpoena? What would I tell them?
How much notice do they need to give me out of state? Because I need to possibly make travel arrangements and ask off for work if they are really sending one.
Does it make sense to get an attorney to talk to the FBI FIRST before I go to court? I don't even know why he is on trial or what they want to ask me about or how they might trap me into saying something the wrong way.
Like should I make a deal with the FBI to make sure nothing I did accidentally gets interpreted wrongly? I want to cooperate but am scared.
Will the subpoena tell me the nature of the trial or why I am being called?
I knew my boss was not ethical but I didn't know he was doing things that were illegal. What if he says I did to get less time?
