Do I have to appear for Arraignment on a Misdemeanor charge?

Yes, if it is a DUI or DV (Domestic Violence) charge. Otherwise, if you have hired an attorney they can file a waiver of arraignment with the Court and plead not guilty on your behalf. The Court Clerk will then set a Pretrial Hearing date within 30 days. You are required to appear at the Pretrial Hearing.
