Hi,
I had accident and the fault was some one. That person didn't paid fine and ask for trial. I received a letter from court "You are hereby subpoenaed to appear for the trial of the charge on the above referenced citation."

Is it mandatory to go in this case? It looks like I'm a witness for the state. Any advice?

Yes, you appear and testify.

IANAL, but when you are subpoenaed, you need to be in court or else a warrant could be put out for your arrest. If you can't make it, you have to file motion with the court to quash the subpoena and see what the judge decides. Go to the courthouse and they can help you out with the procedure.

Question:
I went to go court and person doesn't show up but COP was there. I'm state witness. His license was suspended, and again rollback. I again received a letter with same message with another date trial. I'm a witness for the state , Do I need to go again? I have somethings on same date. What to do?

Only you or a legal professional can answer these questions for you, strangers on the internet are not privy to the specifics of your case or to each and every motion filed or not filed by multiple parties.

Undoubtedly you received some sort of paperwork before you left the courthouse, what did that paperwork indicate? Therein lies your answer Sir.

Also, at the very least, please pursue a GED. Being literate really does help a person get through life a little more smoothly.

If you were requested, you are required to appear. I think most Courts in MD have a number you can call to see if you are needed, but other than that or talking to a Clerk, you have to appear if summonsed.

(I know because I am an officer.)
