Manhattan Arraignment Lawyer

Representation at an Arraignment

Has a loved one been arrested for a crime? The first step in the legal process after a person has been arrested for a crime is an arraignment. Arraignmentsare held within 24 hours after a person has been arrested. At the hearing, the charges against the defendant will be read. A judge will also decide if the person should be released or kept in jail. There are two ways a person arrested for a crime can be released, either on their own recognizance or by paying a bail amount set by the court. If the court chooses to set bail, the money will need to be paid before the defendant is released. After a person has been released, if they do not appear at their next scheduled court date, a warrant will be issued for their arrest.
