391. Any summons, notice of summons or other written proceeding under which a defendant has been summoned to appear is equivalent to a statement of offence on the date fixed for the first appearance before a judge, where the prosecutor requests only the minimum sentence prescribed by law and the written proceeding indicates such sentence.
Payments in full discharge prescribed by any Act or regulation constitute a minimum sentence.
