When a person accused of committing a crime is charged by Crown counsel and the case goes to court, a date will be set for the accused to have their first appearance.
Request to Appear in Court
If you are a victim of crime and your case proceeds to preliminary hearing or trial, you will likely be called to testify as a witness for Crown counsel. Even if you have already given your written statement to police, your personal testimony in court is necessary during the trial.
When you are called to testify in court, Crown counsel contacts you. You will be advised about the court date, time and location. You may receive a phone call, letter or subpoena. If you receive a document, please remember to bring it with you to court.
