SECTION 200.15
Superior court information; definition
Criminal Procedure (CPL) CHAPTER 11-A, PART 2, TITLE I, ARTICLE 200
§ 200.15 Superior court information; definition.

A superior court information is a written accusation by a district
attorney filed in a superior court pursuant to article one hundred
ninety-five, charging a person, or two or more persons jointly, with the
commission of a crime, or with the commission of two or more offenses,
at least one of which is a crime. A superior court information may
include any offense for which the defendant was held for action of a
grand jury and any offense or offenses properly joinable therewith
pursuant to sections 200.20 and 200.40, but shall not include an offense
not named in the written waiver of indictment executed pursuant to
section 195.20. A superior court information has the same force and
effect as an indictment and all procedures and provisions of law
applicable to indictments are also applicable to superior court
informations, except where otherwise expressly provided.
