Will I be sworn in?
Anyone who testifies in court will be sworn in by the court.

It is helpful if you think about your case ahead of time and make of list of questions you would like to ask witnesses. The judge will have no information about your case except what is heard at trial. Do not assume that the court has read the police report - it has not. You may be able to obtain a copy of the police report by contacting the Police Department.
