How do you cite a citation in APA format?

Your in-text citation should include both authors: the author(s) of the original source and the author(s) of the secondary source. For example: (Habermehl, 1985, as cited in Kersten, 1987). In your reference list you should provide the details of the secondary source (the source you read).

What is the difference between a citation and a charge?

A citation is the action taken by the police (also called a non-custodial arrest), whereas it is the city attorney/district attorney who will file the complaint against you (or deny to prosecute the charge).

Is a citation considered a charge?

A citation is the ticket you receive when you are just cited, and not arrested on the spot. A misdemeanor is a minor criminal charge, with less serious consequences than a felony.

What happens with a citation?

What Happens When You Get a Traffic Ticket? The officer will ask for your driver’s license, your car’s registration, and your proof of insurance and may ask you to step outside your car. Signing the “ticket” is not an admission of guilt but is a promise to appear in the listed court no later than the listed date.

Does a warning citation go on record?

Since a warning isn’t a citation, there will be no points added to your driving record. If you receive a citation and live in a state with a points system, you’ll have points added to your driving record. Warnings won’t appear on your driving record.
