WHAT IS AN ARRAIGNMENT???


An arraignment is when the Court officially takes jurisdiction over a case. Everyone comes together in front of a judge and they formally charge the person with the crime alleged. A plea is entered at that time (GUILTY/NOT GUILTY). If a NOT GUILTY PLEA is entered, the Court must then decide whether the person charged should stay in jail or be released. The Court sets a BAIL. The Court usually tries to assess flight risk when considering bail. This means, the Court, which does not know your loved one, will have to figure out whether he or she will return to Court. They use lots of factors, including the nature of the charges, the person’s job history and educational background, and whether or not the person has significant ties to the community. They also take note of who has bothered to come to court on behalf of the person during the arraignment. IT IS THE LAWYER WHO WILL ARGUE THE BAIL APPLICATION. There may be no BAIL. In that case, the person is released on his or her own recognizance (ROR). That means the person can leave and will come back at a later date. If a bail is set, the person will be held until bail is posted.THE REST OF THE CASE WILL BE DEALT WITH AT LATER DATES. THERE WILL NOT BE A TRIAL ON THE DAY OF ARRAIGNMENT.

 

In New York City Criminal Courts, Arraignments usually happen from 9am to 1am – 7 days a week (except Staten Island/Richmond County).

 

What is a DP?

DP stands for “Decline Prosecution” or when the District Attorney (DA) declines to prosecute a case.  This means that someone who has been arrested will not have any further action taken against him or her.  While the DA can file charges at a later date, often, this does not occur.  Sometimes, someone will say they were DP’ed.  When someone is released after arrest but before the arraignment (released before seeing a Judge) because the DA decides to decline prosecute a case, it is said that they were DPed.

In some situations, a person who was DP’d may want to consider contacting a lawyer regarding a possible civil rights suit and/or false imprisonment, false arrest action.  This is especially the case where a person who was arrested suffers damages.  Damages can be due to police brutality but may arise from someone losing days of work, having expenses as a result of an arrest, or from property damage that occurs as a result to or incident to an arrest.

If you are looking to talk to a lawyer regarding a civil rights case against the City of New York, you should do so RIGHT AWAY.  There are may rules that can bar your case if you don’t take action within a certain amount of time.  This applies to suits against the City in general, including false arrest, malicious prosecution, excessive force, civil rights, police brutality, false imprisonment, and similar cases.  While our firm handles these cases, this information, as with the rest of the information on our site, is provided for informational purposes and is not intended to create an attorney/client – lawyer/client relationship.  You should discuss these issues with your lawyer.

Get out a pen and some paper. You should get the following useful information from Central Booking, the Police Department that made the arrest, or the Arraignment Clerk at the Criminal Courthouse:

Arrest Number:
Date & Time of Arrest:
County of Arrest:
Docket Number:

These Items will be helpful for tracking your loved one through the New York Criminal Courts and Central Booking. The ARREST NUMBER is used by CENTRAL BOOKING and the POLICE DEPARTMENT (NYPD) to track people. The DOCKET NUMBER is used by the CRIMINAL COURT to track a Defendant’s Case. Each case gets a separate docket number. Each time someone is arrested, they get assigned a different ARREST NUMBER. The best way to get information is to call central booking and get the person’s ARREST NUMBER and then call the Arraignment Clerk’s at the Criminal Court in the County in which the person was arrested to get a Docket Number and find out when the person might be arraigned.

If someone is arrested, especially when the arrest was in the evening, that person will probably not see a judge until the next day. Sometimes, the person will see a judge the same day. A good rule of thumb, which is not absolute, is that the process can take about 24 hours.


 

REMEMBER:
OFTEN THE PHONES ARE BEING STAFFED BY ONE OR TWO PEOPLE FOR THE WHOLE COUNTY. THE CLERKS WORK VERY HARD. THEY HAVE TO DEAL WITH HUNDREDS OF CONFUSED PEOPLE A DAY. DESPITE YOUR FRUSTRATION, BE KIND AND FRIENDLY TO THE CLERKS. PEOPLE SOMETIMES FORGET THAT A CLERK THAT PICKS UP THE PHONE IS JUST DOING HIS OR HER JOB AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ARREST THAT HAS TAKEN PLACE. BY PICKING UP THE PHONE, THAT PERSON HAS SHOWN THAT HE OR SHE WOULD LIKE TO HELP YOU AND GET YOU INFORMATION, IF HE OR SHE CAN. A LITTLE KINDNESS CAN GO A LONG WAY!

HAS YOUR LOVED ONE BEEN
ARRESTED IN NEW YORK CITY?

DON’T PANIC! This page will attempt to help you through the next 24 hours.It is a Law Firm web page and can be considered attorney advertising, but will help you whether you hire our firm or anyone else.Your goal right now is to try and bring your loved one home.

Usually, within 24 hours from a person’s arrest, that person will have an arraignment in the criminal court in the county in which he or she was arrested. First the person will probably go to the precinct.If you speak to your loved one, make sure he or she does not give any statements and requests a lawyer, or
states that he or she has a lawyer if such is the case.This is important and can make a HUGE difference later in a case.

After the person is processed at the precinct, the person moves to a Central Booking Unit and eventually to the Courthouse. Before he or she is court ready, he or she will be identified by the ARREST NUMBER.GET THIS NUMBER FROM CENTRAL BOOKING.Once at the Courthouse, the person is eventually processed and once he or she receives a DOCKET NUMBER.The ARREST NUMBER and the DOCKET NUMBER are crucial to tracking the progress of the person’s case.Often, once there is a DOCKET NUMBER, the case is court ready and the person will be arraigned in front of a judge.

CJA INTERVIEW

Don’t go leaving the phone just yet.An agency is going to
interview your loved one and prepare a report that will be considered during the BAIL decision.It Is called CJA.They will interview your loved one and then attempt to confirm the information given.This means they will be calling the number your loved one gives.If possible, make sure you discuss with your loved one who will be called and what number they should call.  MAKE SURE SOMEONE PICKS THAT PHONE UP!

Complaint set forth by the District Attorney and they have your loved one in custody.Everyone comes together in

alleged.A plea is entered at that time (GUILTY/NOT GUILTY).If a NOT GUILTY PLEA is entered, the Court must then decide whether the person charged should stay in jail or be released.The Court sets a BAIL.The Court usually tries to assess flight risk when considering bail.This means, the Court, which does not know your loved one, will have to figure out whether he or she will return to Court.They use lots of factors, including the nature of the charges, the person’s job history and educational background, and

IMMIGRATION ISSUES

If your loved one IS NOT A CITIZEN of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, you MUST MAKE SURE THE ATTORNEY KNOWS THIS.This is very important.There are important additional considerations that must be accounted for when NON-CITIZENS are charged with a crime.Please
make sure you bring any immigration issues to the attention of your attorney
.

New York Criminal Law Firm

THE COURT SET BAIL, NOW WHAT!?

READY SET GO.It happens that quick sometimes.If you
can post bail in the Courtroom (it wont be there but if you can do it RIGHT AWAY) let the attorney handling the arraignment know so that he can inform the
Court.
He or she should know BEFORE the arraignment, not after.This is because if the Court isn’t aware that
bail is about to be posted, the person might be sent to a Borough house/holding facility.You can then post bail at a
number of locations at that point, but your loved one’s release may be delayed.This could happen anyway, but if you have any chance at a more expeditious release, it is doing things in this manner.

*THIS SITE MAY BE CONSIDERED ATTORNEY ADVERTISING IN CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS*  THIS SITE WAS CREATED BY A CRIMINAL LAW ATTORNEY & NOT BY THE COURT.

New York Criminal Law Firm

Please Note:

WWW.CENTRALBOOKING.INFO is run by a criminal attorney. We have tried to compile information helpful to those who have had a friend or loved one arrested in New York City. This site however, IS NOT RUN BY THE COURTS, OR ANY GOVERNMENT AGENCY. We have tried throughout the site to help the General Public and our clients navigate the arraignment, central booking and arrest process by providing what we believe is information that will be helpful.

We have received many calls regarding Central Booking Numbers and the fact that many do not work or just ring. It may be helpful to call the arraignment clerk in the county that your friend or loved one was arrested in for assistance.


PLEASE NOTE, THESE NUMBERS CHANGE PERIODICALLY.

The following numbers may be of assistance to those seeking to obtain information regarding the arrest of a loved one and a future arraignment date/time:

Arraignment Clerks Phone Numbers:



Bronx County Arraignment Clerk Phone Number:

718-618-3008

Brooklyn/Kings County Arraignment Clerk Phone Number:

718-243-2545, 718-643-5296, 718-643-5675, 718-243-3501

New York County Arraignment Clerk Phone Number:

646-386-4545, 3921

Queens County Arraignment Clerk Phone Number:

718-298-0736

Richmond County Arraignment Clerk Phone Number:

718-390-8400

The arraignment clerk’s in each county court have information regarding when a person who has been arrested may see a Judge.  They are very busy.  Often, they not only do the work they have in the office, they also have to answer the phone.  Sometimes there are 1-2 clerks answering the phones for the whole county.  This means that it may be difficult to get through to find out if someone has been arrested, what someone has been charged with, or when the person may see a Judge in Court.  Please be patient.  The arraignment Clerk in each county is the best way to find someone arrested in New York City.  Please remember that the clerk might not have information on someone arrested in New York until that person is transported from the police precinct or put into the computer system.  Sometimes, someone arrested in New York City is not immediately taken to central booking.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office has an Inmate Information Page.

The inmate roster and census are updated daily, Monday through Friday.
