Brooklyn Desk Appearance Ticket

Did you get a Desk Appearance Ticket in Brooklyn?

First of all. What is a Desk Appearance Ticket?

A Desk Appearance Ticket is a document given to you following your arrest that tells you when and where to appear for your arraignment. An arraignment is when you and your lawyer appear before a NYC criminal court judge to face charges that something you did broke the law. At the arraignment, you can plead guilty or not guilty. If you plead guilty, you may be immediately sentenced and the guilty plea could give you a permanent criminal record. Sentencing is, generally, when you are punished and punishments range and vary depending on the seriousness of the offense, the opinion the prosecutor or judge has about you or your case, and the forms of punishment allowed by law. Most misdemeanors carry up to a year in jail and felonies can be punished by a sentence of over a year in jail.
