    LEVEL 4:  Arraignment

    An arraignment is a hearing before the Judge at which a minor is informed of the charges against them, the minor's rights are read to them, and they are given the opportunity to admit or deny the charges.

    Upon filing of a petition, the clerk will schedule an arraignment and Notice of Hearing will be mailed to you.

    At the arraignment, the Judge will advise you of your rights and read the petition to you.  At this point, you may enter a plea in three ways:  admit, deny, or plead no contest to the charges.

    If you admit or plead No Contest, the court may ask for recommendations from the probation department and then make a dispositional order.

    The court may accept an admission to a lesser offense after amending the petition.  You may offer additional information to the Court regarding the circumstances surrounding the offense, and then the Court will make a decision.

    If the charge is denied, the matter will be sent to the County Attorney's office for screening and further process and in most cases a pretrial date will be set.  See Level 5: Pretrial
