Hello. My name is Alex. I will be happy to answer your question.Please note that any information is provided for educational purposes only!
I cannot comment on your specific case, but generally, if the person is subpoenaed to appear in court, then the person should appear in court or the judge might hold the person who doesn't comply with the subpoena in contempt of court and can order sanctions which can range from fines and court costs to jail time.
Also, any person who is a victim / witness in a court case, shall keep the court employees and/or prosecutor's office updated as to his/her current address.
I wish you the best of luck!
Thank you for your follow up.
