Alabama Rules of Criminal Procedure
Rule 17. Subpoenas
Rule 17.2. Form of subpoena
Every subpoena issued by the clerk or other authorized officer shall state the name of the court and the title of the action, if applicable; shall command each person to whom it is directed to attend and to give testimony at the time and
the place stated therein; and, if applicable, shall state on behalf of which party the testimony is solicited.
This rule is essentially the same as Rule 45(a), A.R.Civ.P. and, as pointed out in the committee comments to that rule, does not change present procedure.
