What should I expect at my arraignment?

What is arraignment? Arraignment is where the accused person is called to Court to answer the accusation.

I didn't do what I'm accused of doing so it should be over at arraignment, right? No. The Court reads the accusations to the accused at arraignment and the accused is given the opportunity to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty. After arraignment, the real work begins where John Schmidt engages in a variety of activities depending upon the client's defense(s) including but not limited to gathering exculpatory evidence and negotiating with prosecutors to help them understand the weaknesses in their case as well as the strengths of the client's case.

Perhaps, the best explaination is illustrated in the video below.
