I've been subpoenaed to show in court to testify against

Customer Question

I've been subpoenaed to show in court to testify against someone at trial. I was questioned by police 9 months prior to the subpoena. I told them I didn't have to speak to them so they left. I have nothing to do with this case, and I feel like they are trying to use my words against me, or "set me up" for lack of a better term.. Can I invoke my 5th amendment right against self incrimidation?

Yes, you have the right to refuse to testify under the 5th Amendment if the testimony would possibly lead to self-incrimination.
