Desk Appearance Tickets in NYC - What You Need To Know

In NYC, after an arrest, an individual will be taken to central booking and spend upwards of 24 hours waiting to see a judge. In certain instances, someone who has been arrested can avoid this lengthy process by obtaining a desk appearance ticket. A desk appearance ticket (DAT) is an order to appear in Criminal Court for an arraignment. Oftentimes, when the police arrest someone for certain crimes, instead of sending the person though central booking, they will issue a DAT that orders the person to appear in court on a certain date. Make no mistake; a person who receives a DAT has been arrested.
