The DA’s office delivered the notice to the girl’s house. When her lawyer told the prosecutor to leave the girl alone, the prosecutor got a real subpoena and had it delivered to the girl at school. The prosecutor said he was obligated to interview the victim in order to do his job.
District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro has said people faced “no legal consequences” if they failed to obey fake subpoenas sent by his office. But one of his prosecutors got an arrest warrant for a woman in part because she didn’t obey a fake subpoena. She was never arrested because the charges were dropped.
