no problem

summons = when some is charged and has to appear before the court

subpoena = witness that is ordered to come to court to give evidence

Is there a penalty attached to subpeona if the witness refuses to come to court to give evidence with the excuse that witness has to be at work or lost pay, lost job?

A warrant for arrest could be issued for failing to attend court for a witness. I can not remember if the person is also charged with obstruct justice or not? I'm not in the court processes enough to know the proper answer....sorry
