393. At the time of the appearance, the judge may allow
(1)  that a statement of offence be served forthwith on the defendant, where the sentence requested by the prosecutor is not indicated on the notice of summons or on the summons or where the prosecutor intends to request a greater sentence than the minimum sentence prescribed by law; or
(2)  that the prosecutor serve forthwith on the defendant and file in the court’s record a document including any additional information required to cause the notice of summons or the summons to be equivalent to a statement of offence.
The request for sentence need not be entered in a separate section of the notice of summons or summons, if the prosecutor requests only the minimum sentence.
