Question: What Is An Arraignment In Savannah?

Answer: An arraignment is the first opportunity that you have to be heard. That’s going to be in court, that’s going to be your opportunity to stand up and hear exactly what charges are against you and plead either guilty or not guilty. Obviously, if you plead guilty then the case will end right there and you will be sentenced. But if you plead not guilty, then that will go to either a bench trial or a jury trial from there. But it’s important because in arraignment, the things that you say at an arraignment can be held against you later. So, the arraignment is really the first step in your entire case. That’s why it’s important to have someone who is experienced with arraignments and knows how to handle them and what to say and what not to say.
