As an accused, is it necessary for me to go the court?

Yes, it is necessary for a person who is accused of a criminal case to appear on every date but If you file a document called a “Power of Attorney” to appear for all the proceedings on your behalf, then you don’t need to go to court every time. Your counsel can file exemption on your behalf, However, there are exceptions to this rule where your attendance in court is required. For example, when the court is pronouncing a sentence when you’re entering a plea, or for your trial.
