Kingsville Arraignment Attorney
The first court date after the charge is filed with a court is called “arraignment”. This is the appearance date given to the accused when he posts bail.
Arraignment serves several functions:
- to formally identify the accused as the person charged;
- to determine how the accused pleas to the charge;
- to appoint an attorney to assist you in your defense, if you are unable to afford an attorney; and
- to advise the accused of pretrial and/or trial settings.
This phase may be waived by your attorney, saving valuable time for everyone.
