    What is a criminal citation in Maryland?

    A criminal citation was given to my son in St. Mary's County, Maryland and I would like to find out what it is.

    PURPOSE
    The State of Maryland Uniform Criminal Citation (Form DC/CR 45) is designed to provide a single format on which police officers may charge an adult offender with violations of certain petty misdemeanor criminal codes and statutes. This applies to both State and County codes. This citation may only be issued to adult violators (18 years or older). The Uniform Criminal Citation may be used as an alternative to a “custodial arrest.”
