It was domestic violence. my neighbours were arguing and the wife locked him out of the house. their dog was outside and needed his insulin injection which was in the house. I persuaded my neighbour to let the dog in and when letting the dog in he barged past me and then started to smash their house up with an axe. I gave a statement on the night and they have now summoned me to court which is making me feel unwell.
They have had many rows that I have stayed out of. but my question is if the cps summons me to court is there any way not to attend court.
Thank you for your advice in order to give evidence do you always have to attend court? or are there other ways around it? how do you mean if they can't find me at home?
