Can I go to my first court appearance without an attorney?

You are not always taken into custody (jail) when you are arrested. Sometimes, the officer issues you a citation for the crime, which either includes a date that you are to appear in court, OR gives you a deadline to make arrangements for that first appearance. This applies to those instances.
