An “Arraignment” takes place under two circumstances: either after a Preliminary Hearing has been waived, and the case has been transferred from Justice Court to Superior Court, or it occurs simultaneously with the Initial Appearance in cases proceeding through a Grand Jury Indictment. During the Arraignment, also known as a “Not Guilty Arraignment,” the judge will provide the defendant with the next court date for a “Pretrial Conference” and disclose the specific judge assigned to the case. In instances where the Court proceeding combines the Initial Appearance and Arraignment due to a Grand Jury Indictment, the judge will also determine the conditions of “Release” at this juncture. For further information on the four types of release, please refer to our comprehensive resource.
