HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regardYou only need to be present, if you are Subpoenaed by the Court to appear
Expert:  Samuel II replied 1 year ago.
If the District Attorney prosecutor needs you, they will call and ask you to be available. But unless there is a Subpoena for you to appear, you are not legally obligated to do so
