After being booked you will be required to make a court appearance. If the incident was a serious felony then you will likely appear before a judge for arraignment within 48-hours of being booked. If the incident was a minor crime like a misdemeanor then you will likely be arraigned within 2 to 3 weeks.

At your arraignment you will be informed of the charges against you and will be asked enter a plea of either: guilty, not guilty, or no contest. During arraignment the judge will also determine the specifics of your bail, or grant you permission to leave on your own recognizance.
Following your arraignment you will be asked to appear at a later date. The second meeting will be the Pretrial Conference. During this meeting your criminal defense lawyer will discuss the details of your case with the district attorney in an attempt to resolve the issue without going to trial. If a deal can be struck then your sentencing will commence. On the other hand, if the two sides cannot come to a ‘deal’ then your case will go to trial.

Seppi Esfandi is an expert at contacting the prosecuting agency and convincing them that there is insufficient evidence to successfully prosecute. By utilizing an early intervention expert, it’s possible to have a case dismissed without any effect on one’s criminal record.
