At the arraignment the judge lets you know what your being charged for, and asks how you plead. Process takes about 5 min if that. So why should someone hire a lawyer for a arraingment and spend 1000+ dollars on that lawyer, when its a quick process just telling you what your being charged for???
Also if you set up a pre-trial hearing are you allowed to change the date to a earlier date. Say its in three months, can u reschedule for a month after
