First Appearances, Arraignment and Pre-Trial Procedure After Being Arrested in Broward County

First appearance

In Broward County will your first appearance will occur before an assigned judge the following morning after an arrest is made.

This gives the defendant to a criminal action and opportunity to appear with their attorney and address issues such as bond release and future court dates. In most cases, the next scheduled court appearance will be for an arraignment. Your appearance at arraignment may not be necessary where private counsel is retained to represent your defense. This is because it is common practice for Florida criminal defense attorneys to file written pleas of not guilty on behalf of their clients.
