Charge by Summons

A summons is a document directing the named person to appear before a judge at a specific time and place to answer to the stated charge or charges. A traffic ticket is the most common summons, although one may be issued for a variety of criminal charges. While issued most often used in traffic and misdemeanor cases, felony charges may also be initiated by summons. Most significantly, a summons issues instead of being arrested and incarcerated.
