Tomorrow is my first court appearance, what should I expect?

Your first scheduled appearance before the court is called an Arraignment.  At that time, the court will formally notify you of the charges, address any issues of bail, and ask whether or not you intend to hire an attorney to represent you.  The typical first-offender will be released upon his promise to return to court  as ordered (“personal recognizance”), however the Court  can also impose conditions to the pre-trial releases such as no driving, no drinking, AA attendance and the like.   What takes place at the arraignment can often shape the outcome of the remainer of the case and for that reason, you should have an attorney there to assist you through the process.
