Non-Traffic Citations

In Pennsylvania, non-traffic criminal proceedings are set into motion by either a citation issued to a defendant or an arrest without a warrant. Non-traffic citations typically include a notice to appear before a magisterial judge or trial commissioner if the person receiving the citation is not providing a guilty plea. Citations are given for minor criminal offenses, and are often called summary offenses. The types of offenses that often result in a citation include loitering, disorderly conduct, harassment, public drunkenness, and low-level retail theft. Convictions may result in a fine, and in some cases, non-traffic citations may be expunged from an offender’s criminal record if certain conditions are met.
