Re: What Do I Say at My Arraignment
You asked this in your original thread and the reason no one posted a reply is because there is no reasonable way that one could attempt to sit here and give you every possible answer to every possible question that the judge can ask you.
You are asked questions by the judge and you simply answer them as you did here. If you want to plead "guilty" to one charge, you state so loud and clear when the judge asks you so that he/she can hear it; if you have a correction to one charge, you offer that when the judge asks you for the correction; if you cannot afford to pay that day, you ask the judge for an extension to pay! Pretty simple, isn't it?
You need to be inside the courtroom when it opens up and since the lines get really long, you need to be at the courthouse as early as you can. This will vary from one court house to the next, and I am not going to guess what time do people start lining up at your courthouse.
I don't know where you get the idea that you're going to get hit with a $200 for the arraignment!
And no, you do not need your original citation. Just your picture ID will do!
That is about as much hand holding as I can do.
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
