When called to testify, a witness should dress neatly and conservatively for court; no shorts, tank tops, or clothing with offensive language or designs or victim photos. Talk to your assigned advocate if you have any questions about what is appropriate for court.
Victims and witnesses are entitled to a witness fee if subpoenaed to court, and under certain circumstances, payment or reimbursement for costs of travel.
