When you appear, you will have 2 options, to plead guilty or not guilty. If you plead guilty, you must complete an acknowledgement and waiver of rights. The sentence for your offense can take a variety of paths. You can discuss those with the prosecutor, or plead guilty and discuss them with the Judge at the time of arraignment.
If you plead not guilty, your date will be set for trial. At this time, bail may be reviewed. If you are charged with a Class A Misdemeanor or Felony, you may apply for a court appointed attorney by filling out a form at the clerk’s window. In all cases, you can hire your own attorney to defend you.
