Criminal Justice
Bill Number: HB16-1032
Year: 2016
ACLU Position: Support

Description:

When a peace officer issues a person a summons for a criminal
violation, current law requires that the summons contain, among other
information:
• The person’s license plate number and driver’s license
number; and
• A place for the person to execute a promise to appear.
The bill removes the requirement to include the person’s license plate
number and driver’s license number on the summons. The bill also
removes the requirement for a place for the defendant to execute a
promise to appear.
