Deranged Cyberstalker Deb Frisch thinks that she is going to be able to subpoena folks for her sentencing hearing in October. The hearing will be in Colorado. It’s a state case.
IANAL, but the reading I’ve done about Colorado sentencing hearings indicates that the defendant is able to call character witnesses. The folks listed in that tweet probably wouldn’t be the sort of witness Ms. Frisch would find helpful.
Gentle Reader, pretend for a moment that the court holding the hearing would issue those subpoenas. So what? They would only be enforceable in the State of Colorado unless Ms. Frisch took them to courts in the states where each of the witnesses reside and had them reissued as enforceable subpoenas in those states. Then she would have to pay to have the subpoenas served (a party in a case can’t serve subpoenas related to the case).
Then she would have to pay the travel, food, and lodging expenses of those out-of-state witnesses, and witnesses in some states must be paid in advance upon service of the subpoena.
Given Ms. Frisch’s present state of mind, it seems unlikely that she could accomplish all that anyway.
