L CrRLJ 4.1 (e) Arraignments will normally be held on the next court day after the Defendant has been cited and released or, if in custody, on the next court day after their arrest. At arraignment, the Defendant will be provided with a "Statement of Rights/Plea Form" and, if they are requesting a court-appointed attorney, a "Financial Declaration" form to fill out and present to the Judge before entering a plea. The Court shall assure itself that the Defendant understands his/her rights and the charge(s) before taking a plea. If an interpreter is necessary for the Defendant to understand their rights, the Court may set over the arraignment until such interpretation services can be secured. At the arraignment, the Court shall set a pretrial hearing date approximately one month later and a trial date within the speedy trial time as determined by the Court.
