Arraignment Hearing

An arraignment is the opportunity for the defendant to hear and receive the formal charges against him or her and to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty.

If he or she pleads not guilty, a trial date for either a Jury Trial or a Non Jury Trial will be set for a later date.

If the defendant pleads guilty, the Judge can rule the sentencing on that day or the Judge could set a special plea sentencing date.
