Waiver of Arraignment

A Waiver of Arraignment will not be automatically granted. Consent of the Court is required.

The Court generally requires defendants charged in most drug and alcohol cases to appear to determine if monitoring is appropriate. In addition, defendants charged with sex crimes, murders, aggravated robbery, and other violent crimes will generally be required to appear. Attorneys should contact the 
Court Coordinator for obtaining a waiver of appearance.
