Going to court? Check out this video to learn what happens during the arraignment process and why retaining counsel is an extremely important step.
What happens during the arraignment process?
If you’ve been arrested or charged with any crime in New Jersey and you’re preparing to appear for an arraignment, here is what you should know. Be aware that the judge is going to read you your rights, allowing you to know that you have a right to an attorney and you have a right to apply for a public defender if you qualify. Ordinarily, there’s no real issue for bail, since you’re appearing on your own, but you should at least have the opportunity to consult with an attorney, either before your arraignment or directly thereafter, to see if you want to hire your own attorney for the case.
