Criminal Court Appearance Tickets (Summonses) Generally. The NYPD has several options when confronting someone for suspected illegal behavior. Depending on the nature of the law that was broken, they can make an arrest, issue a traffic ticket, or a criminal court appearance ticket.

A criminal court appearance ticket, often called a summons, is a pink colored ticket issued in New York City that charges you with violating a penal law, administrative code, vehicle and traffic law, park rules, or other infraction of the state or local law and which typically requires an appearance in criminal court.

Being issued a criminal court appearance ticket / summons can be frightening because regardless of what you were told by the police officer who gave it to you, it may require more than one trips to court and could carry the risk of a criminal conviction if it charged a misdemeanor. Some tickets can also carry the risk of thousands of dollars of fines. Tickets issued to corporations will also require the corporation to answer by sending an attorney since only an attorney can represent the corporation on a criminal court appearance ticket / summons.
