I ALREADY RECEIVED A COURT DATE. WHAT IS THE “ARRAIGNMENT?”
Arraignment is what starts the court case against you. It is your first court appearance for a drunk driving arrest.
Arraignment is when the government formally files charges against you. The judge will read you your rights and will ask you whether you enter a plea of “guilty” or “not guilty.”
If you are represented by knowledgeable DUI lawyer, you will enter a plea of not guilty. Once you plead “not guilty,” the judge will schedule another hearing date, called the pre-trial hearing.
Some people think that arraignment is not important enough to have an experienced attorney with them in court. That is a huge mistake. Even if the arresting officer did not book you into jail, the judge may. Otherwise, the judge will impose certain conditions of release. This can include random UA tests, ignition interlock device, alcohol monitoring, etc.
So be sure to speak to a qualified DUI lawyer prior to your arraignment hearing.
