Rule 5. Sufficiency of the Charging Document
No charging document shall be deemed insufficient for failure to contain a definite statement of the essential facts constituting the specific violation which the respondent is alleged to have committed if the charging document contains either a written description of the violation or a section of the City Code and, or Title 28 of the Arizona Revised Statutes alleged to have been violated. However, the presiding magistrate, special magistrate, or limited special magistrate may require additional clarifying language when deemed appropriate. Failure to comply may result in dismissal of the charging document without prejudice.
