1. What is an Appearance Ticket?

An appearance ticket is a written notice, issued by a police officer, instructing a person to appear in a local criminal court regarding their alleged involvement in a crime. Usually issued in less severe cases, appearance tickets help avoid a trip to Central Booking and allow the individual to attend court at a scheduled date. The term “appearance ticket” can also be used interchangeably with a summons, or any other related term.

2. How Do Desk Appearance Tickets Work?

When a desk appearance ticket is issued in connection with a crime, it must include information notifying the defendant of their right to receive a supporting deposition. This informs the charged individual of the evidence and details of the alleged crime.

3. When and By Whom is an Appearance Ticket Issued?

In cases of crimes other than class A, B, C or D felonies, a police officer has the discretion to issue an appearance ticket instead of making an arrest. Public servants who are not police officers but have the authority to issue appearance tickets can do so in limited cases if they have reasonable cause to believe a person committed a crime or a petty offense in their presence.

4. Appearance Ticket Service After Arrest on Posting Pre-Arraignment Bail

In some cases, the issuing and serving of an appearance ticket by a police officer may be conditional on the posting of pre-arraignment bail. This sum of money, which is forfeited if the person fails to comply with the appearance ticket’s directions, acts as a guarantee that the defendant will attend their court date. Specific forms and procedures apply when posting pre-arraignment bail, including providing personal information and acknowledging the conditions of the bail.

If you are looking for a lawyer that listens, is aggressive where needed, and holds his word above all else, Todd is the best pick. I had hired multiple attorneys prior to hiring the Spodek Group for a white collar case. The first thing that stood out to me was the cost, as anyone going through the process and dealing with the system, money was tight at that time - especially after hiring and firing multiple lawyers. The cost was not as high as others which was definitely a plus. Todd's intake process was also unlike other attorneys. He took the time to actually listen. He cared. He was trying to put himself in my shoes while I was explaining the situation to him and he really took the time to understand the whole situation. Other lawyers will give you 15 mins and send you a retainer agreement. Not Todd, I think he spent almost two hours with me as I was explaining everything.Not only was he great during the onboarding process, he was supportive and very informative through the entire plea process and eventually sentencing. After hiring him, I asked if I should hire a prison consultant, he told me to save my money as he would do everything they would. He was right and held up to his word. Later on I would hear from others that went with the prison consultants that they were a waste of money - I am glad I listened to Todd!When it came time for sentencing, two days prior to sentencing, the prosecutor tried increasing my proposed prison time by almost double - apparently a normal move. Todd and his team worked with me non-stop through the weekend prior to sentencing to ensure that I was not given additional prison time. Again, he took the time to listen and came up with a strategy to explain the case with great detail.Unfortunately, I did plead guilty as that was my best option. Todd and his whole team wrote up nearly 300 pages of a summary of what happened and why I should not be given prison time. If I breakdown the amount I spent with Todd versus the amount of work that I saw being done, I am shocked I was not charged four times as much. The other benefit was, a lot of criminal defense lawyers were just a single attorney with a paralegal or two. Todd had a team of people that I dealt with (5-7 people that I interacted with), but he was ALWAYS accessible. It would never take him more than an hour to reply unless he was in court.I was sentenced to prison and I was emotionally distraught. Todd and his team did whatever they could even after sentencing to make sure I was alright. He personally stayed in touch with my family to ensure I was doing alright and offered support to them. Most lawyers would consider the job complete at sentencing, not Todd.After prison, Todd still spent time with me to make sure I was on the right track and avoiding any potential risks in the future. He has also been giving advice on how to navigate probation etc and has not been looking at the clock for billing.Although I wish I had never been arrested in the first place, I am glad I had Todd and his team in my corner. Without them I likely would have had to spend a lot more time in prison than I did.Thank you, Todd, and the entire Spodek Law team, for helping turn what was a nightmare into a manageable situation!

I don’t know where to start, I can write a novel about this firm, but one thing I will say is that having my best interest was their main priority since the beginning of my case which was back in Winter 2019. Miss Claire Banks, one of the best Attorneys in the firm represented me very well and was very professional, respectful, and truthful. Not once did she leave me in the dark, in fact she presented all options and routes that could possibly be considered for my case and she reinsured me that no matter what I decided to do, her and the team will have my back and that’s exactly what happened. Not only will I be liberated from this case, also, I will enjoy my freedom and continue to be a mother to my first born son and will have no restrictions with accomplishing my goals in life. Now that’s what I call victory!! I thank the Lord, My mother, Claire, and the Spodek team for standing by me and fighting with me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this team. I’m very satisfied, very pleased with their performance, their hard work, and their diligence.Thank you team!

I recently had Spodek Law Group represent me for a legal matter in NYC and I am thoroughly impressed with their services.Alex Zhik secured the best possible outcome for my case.It was a seamless journey from the initial consultation to the resolution of my legal matter. From the moment I spoke to Todd about my case, his enthusiasm to help was evident, setting a positive tone for the entire experience. The efficiency and professionalism displayed by the team is commendable.A particularly noteworthy aspect of their service is their user-friendly portal to upload your documents/evidence. This not only simplified the process, but showcases their commitment to streamline the client experience.Lastly, in an industry where legal fees can often be a concern, I found their pricing to be very reasonable, making needing legal assistance feel accessible and stress-free.I am grateful for their support and wouldn't hesitate to turn to them again in the future.

What is an Appearance Ticket?

An appearance ticket is a written notice issued by a police officer, directing a person to appear in a local criminal court at a later date in connection with their alleged commission of a crime. This is typically given for less serious offenses, as an alternative to taking the individual to Central Booking. Regardless of whether it is referred to as a summons or by another name, a notice that meets this definition is considered an appearance ticket.

How Do Desk Appearance Tickets Work?

When an appearance ticket is issued in relation to a charged crime, it must include language notifying the defendant of their right to receive a supporting deposition.

When is an Appearance Ticket Issued, and by Whom?

A police officer may issue an appearance ticket instead of arresting a person without a warrant for a crime other than a class A, B, C, or D felony. If a peace officer not authorized to issue appearance tickets arrests someone for a crime other than a class A, B, C, or D felony, they may request a police officer to issue and serve the arrested person with an appearance ticket. In such cases, the issuing and serving of the appearance ticket may be conditioned on a deposit of pre-arraignment bail.

A public servant other than a police officer, who is specially authorized by state or local law to issue and serve appearance tickets for designated crimes other than class A, B, C, or D felonies, may issue and serve an appearance ticket when they have reasonable cause to believe that the person has committed a crime or a petty offense in their presence.

How is an Appearance Ticket Served After Arrest on Posting Pre-arraignment Bail?

The issuing and serving of an appearance ticket by a police officer following an arrest without a warrant can be made conditional on the posting of pre-arraignment bail. If the person fails to comply with the directions of the appearance ticket, the bail is forfeited. The person posting bail must complete and sign a form that includes specific information, such as their name, residential address, occupation, the title of the crime involved, the status of the action, the date of the principal’s next appearance in court, and the amount of money posted as cash bail.

How Does Arrest Without a Warrant Work in General?

A person who has committed or is believed to have committed a crime and is at liberty in the state can be arrested for such a crime even if no arrest warrant has been issued and no criminal action has yet been commenced in any criminal court.

When and Where is an Arrest Without a Warrant Authorized?

A police officer is allowed to arrest a person for any offense when they have reasonable cause to believe that the person has committed the crime in their presence or otherwise. A police officer can arrest a person for a petty offense only within specific geographical boundaries and under certain conditions. A police officer is allowed to arrest a person for a crime regardless of where the crime was committed and can make the arrest within the state or, if necessary, pursue the person outside the state and arrest them in any state with equivalent laws to those of New York.

In cases involving a felony committed against a member of the same family or household, or when a duly served order of protection or special order of conditions is in effect, a police officer must arrest the person and not attempt to reconcile the parties or mediate.

Understanding the intricacies of the penal code in the state of New York is crucial, as not properly comprehending the law can easily result in an arrest.
