Once your case is “docketed” (is ready for arraignment), you will meet with your attorney. This will be a very quick meeting and the main goal is to get you out of custody as soon as possible.

You will have a chance to speak in depth about your case in a confidential setting at your convenience in your lawyer’s office after arraignment.

Your attorney will tell you what crimes and violations you have been charged with, if a plea offer has been made by the District Attorney, and will ask you what you would like to do.
