Suffolk County DAT attorney Jason Bassett releases a new article (https://jbassettlaw.com/practice-items/long-island-desk-appearance-ticket-lawyer-dat-attorney/) that explains circumstances where a ticket can be issued. The lawyer mentions that if there is probable cause to believe someone has committed an offense, law enforcement will take them into custody to transport them to court for arraignment.

According to the Suffolk County DAT attorney, “Under certain circumstances, however, people facing less serious charges can be issued a “Desk Appearance Ticket.” Rather than being held at the precinct and transported to court, the person is given a piece of paper that provides a day and time they must appear in Court to be arraigned on their case.”

The lawyer explains that the desk appearance ticket may also be sent to the person by mail. A Desk Appearance Ticket (DAT) is a court form that notifies the defendant of their upcoming arraignment. This will also include the date and the time that the defendant will appear in front of a judge.

Attorney Bassett points out that the arraignment dates are often several weeks away from the date of the crime. New York law enforcement must issue a DAT if an alleged crime can be classified as a category-E felony or misdemeanor, and the accused is able to provide government identification.

In the article, the lawyer also lists all the crimes for whom a DAT is often issued. These include crimes such as petit larceny, assault in the third degree, harassment in the second degree, disorderly conduct, controlled possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, and criminal trespass.

“A bench warrant is a written order by a judge commanding law enforcement officers to arrest the named defendant. Bench warrants are issued for those who fail to report or attend court. If an individual has an outstanding bench warrant and in any way interacts with a police officer, the individual will be taken into custody. That means if you are stopped even for a traffic ticket, authorities may find you have an outstanding warrant and arrest you,” says the DAT attorney.

Lastly, attorney Jason Bassett emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer when it comes to matters like a desk appearance ticket. Having an experienced lawyer for these matters may be able to help the client understand their rights and may also help them receive a favorable outcome.
