N.Y. Criminal Procedure Law Section 510.43
Court appearances: additional notifications


The court or, upon direction of the court, a certified pretrial services agency, shall notify all principals released under non-monetary conditions and on recognizance of all court appearances in advance by text message, telephone call, electronic mail or first class mail. The chief administrator of the courts shall, pursuant to subdivision one of section 10.40 of this chapter, develop a form which shall be offered to the principal at court appearances. On such form, which upon completion shall be retained in the court file, the principal may select one such preferred manner of notice.


Such form may request the information necessary for the defendant to be provided with notice in accordance with such single, selected manner of notice. After notice of such consequence, a defendant who intentionally declines to provide the information necessary for the defendant to be provided with such notice pursuant to this section shall forfeit the opportunity to receive such notice until such information is timely provided. Any failure by the court or certified pretrial services agency to provide notice of a scheduled court appearance in the manner provided in this section shall not in and of itself constitute grounds or authorization for the defendant to fail to appear for such scheduled court appearance.
