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.
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.
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.
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.
In certain circumstances, a person who is suspected of committing a crime and is at liberty in the state may be arrested, even without a warrant, regardless of whether a criminal action has yet been commenced in any criminal court.
A police officer is authorized to arrest a person without a warrant in various situations, such as:
In domestic violence cases involving a suspected felony, a police officer is required to arrest the alleged offender, without attempting reconciliation or mediation between the parties.
Navigating the complexities of appearance tickets and arrest without a warrant can be challenging and confusing. That is why it is crucial to be aware of your rights and seek legal counsel when faced with a criminal charge.
Todd Spodek and the Spodek Law Group have years of experience in defending clients in various criminal cases, including those involving appearance tickets and arrests without warrants.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
