General Information
Your first appearance in court is for an arraignment. The purpose of an arraignment is to provide you with the opportunity to enter a plea in your case.

City Prosecutor
Prior to entering a plea, you will have the opportunity to discuss your case with a city prosecutor. The purpose of that discussion is to explore options for entering into a disposition or plea bargain and possibly avoiding having to return to court on a future date.

After you have spoken to the city prosecutor, you will take a seat in the courtroom and wait for the judge to call your case. When you are called, please step to the podium. If you are under the age of 18 years of age, you must have a parent or legal guardian with you who must step to the podium with you. All activity in the courtroom is recorded, so please speak loudly and clearly.

If you plead not guilty, your matter will be set for a trial to the court or to a jury if allowed by law. The trial will occur at a future date. If you plead guilty, your case will likely be concluded at your first appearance.
