If a defendant gets a notice to appear for an arrangement is it always a criminal Case? Can the offense be non criminal? If the offense is non criminal does the defendant have to appear to the arrangement to avoid bench Warrant?
The first appearance in a criminal case involves an Arraignment. Yes, an arraignment hearing only occurs in criminal cases not civil cases. You must appear for an arraignment unless it is "waived" or a paper arraignment is filed and the matter is set for a pretrial. You will want to have an attorney at your side at the arraignment to make sure you are released on a "reasonable" or "personal" bond. Good luck!See question
