Question:

What happens at the criminal arraignment in Virginia?

Answer:

A criminal arraignment in Virginia can be treated differently depending on the jurisdiction that you’re in. In some jurisdictions, at an arraignment, all they’re doing is advising you of your right to an attorney and making sure that you understand that you can have an attorney if you so choose. There are other jurisdictions in Virginia that take the time at an arraignment to actually take down your plea, whether it be guilty, not guilty, or no contest. You’re always going to want to talk to an experienced attorney before you go into your arraignment to make sure that you understand what you’re getting into and to make sure that you don’t cause harm to your criminal matter.
