An arraignment is a formal meeting between a judge and an inmate. The judge informs the inmate of his or her charge(s), reads the inmate his or her rights, and advises the inmate of the bond amount. If the inmate qualifies, an attorney is also appointed during arraignment.

When are inmates arraigned?

Arraignments are generally held daily between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., but may occur at alternate times to accommodate magistrate schedules.

When may I visit an inmate?
