Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today.
The problem is not just the citation but that she did not appear. You need to contact the court first or get a criminal attorney to check on in the case and pay if she owes something.
After that you need all the documents and you need to send them to your wife for when she applies for her H4. It is possible that they give her the waiver due to the fact that the crime was not very serious and that you are in the US and have a US child.
Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you!
