What can happen at arraignment?

The Judge can decide to release you on your own recognizance (“ROR), set bail, or order that you remain in jail without bail. In certain cases a surety hearing will be required before bail can be posted to insure that any funds used to pay the bail are not the proceeds of illegal activity. The prosecutor will make an argument for bail, your attorney will argue on your behalf against the prosecutor’s request and the Judge will make the final decision. If you are released, you must appear in court at 9:30 a.m. on the date your case is scheduled. If you fail to appear for your court date, a warrant will likely be issued for your arrest and your bail can be revoked.
