What happens at my arraignment?

At the time of your arraignment, you are given an Advice of Rights. When your case is called, the Judge will ask you if you have read and understand your rights. You will be informed of the charges and asked how you intend to plea. At this time you may request a court appointed attorney if you cannot afford one. The initial plea is taken and the next court date is assigned.
