I would like to plea not guilty at my upcoming arraignment for a trespassing misdemeanor. I understand at the arraignment the judge lets me know what I am being charged of and asks if I have a lawyer or want one appointed to me. I was wondering if I would be allowed to ask the judge if I can plea not guilty and not pay bail, seeing how I am a full-time college student working part-time and it's already hard as it is. Even though I was in my car, I was handed a ticket for trespassing as a pedestrian. I was in a neighborhood with the nose of my car next to a house and the rear next to the sidewalk of a park; both my passenger and I were given tickets. What're the chances that my case gets dismissed or lowered to an infraction?Could this be sorted out at a pre-trial? How would I motion for this?
