An “Arraignment” will occur either after a Preliminary Hearing has been “straight waived” and the case has been sent up to Superior Court from Justice Court, or it will be conducted at the same time as the Initial Appearance (if a case has proceeded by way of Grand Jury Indictment). At the Arraignment (sometimes called a “Not Guilty Arraignment”), the judge will give a Defendant his next court date for a “Pretrial Conference” and he will inform the Defendant which permanent judge has been specifically assigned to his case. If the Court proceeding is an Initial Appearance/ Arraignment due to a Grand Jury Indictment, the judge will also determine conditions of “Release” at that point. (See Four Types of Release).
