The Bronx Arraignment Lawyer

Arraignment Hearings

If a loved one has been arrested, contact a Bronx arraignment attorney for legal counsel and representation at their arraignment. What is an arraignment? When a person is arrested for a crime, they will appear before a judge within 24 hours where the charges against them will be read. The judge may decide to keep the person in jail, release them on their own recognizance, or release them with bail. When setting bail, the judge will take into consideration the person's family and community ties, employment, prior criminal history, and any failures to appear in court to determine if they are a flight risk. If the judge orders bail, it will need to be paid before the person is releases. When a person that has been released on bail does not appear at their next scheduled court date, a bench warrant will be issued for their arrest.
