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 each given tickets for trespassing after park hours as pedestrians. I fully understand the process of the arraignment, pretrial hearing, and trial. However, I was wondering what the chances are that the judge would hear our cases out at the arraignment, seeing how we have no priors and the charge is fairly minor. My passenger's arraignment is a few days before mine, and she asked if I could come in as a her witness. Would a judge even allow that? Would I have to call the courthouse beforehand? I am also planning on bringing pictures of where my car was parked. We both plan to plea not guilty.
