CLICK HERE for Maricopa County Superior Court Case Procedures Page

CLICK HERE for the Maricopa County Attorney Criminal Trial Process Flowchart

In Maricopa Superior Court, persons arrested appear in an Initial Appearance Court (IA).  This includes new charges warrants, felonies, and misdemeanors.  These hearings take place at the

4th Avenue Jail

201 S. 4th Ave Phoenix, AZ 85003 (Map It)

General Information: (602) 876-1239

Inmate Housing Location Information: (602) 876-0322

Hearings are supposed to take place at the IA within 24 hours of arrest.  When people are arrested, they are booked into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) Jail Management System (JMS).  The Court docket/calendar is updated in three hour intervals 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Usually a Court docket has 40 people but this number can be increased if necessary.  For instance, if there is a high volume of arrests, the docket may contain more than 40 names to ensure that the persons arrested are seen in the target 24 hour period.  IA also hears warrants and handles warrant matters.

Not all persons are arrested and appear in IA.  Some people get an Initial Appearance Summons.  Instead of being arrested and arraigned in IA, these people get an Initial Appearance Summons that will have the time and date they must appear for a hearing.  In these situations, on the date of the hearing, the charges are read, a plea is entered (for example: NOT GUILTY) and a decision about whether to assign a lawyer is made (in cases where one can not afford a lawyer).  The next Court date is also issued.

To Pay a Bond or Fine:

Bonds and fines may be paid at the Fourth Avenue Jail Bond & Fine room located on the north side of the building. It may take up to 48 hours for an inmate’s release to be processed.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office suggests that if you have questions, you may call Sheriff’s Information Management Services (SIMS), at 602-876-0322, prior to paying a bond.  You will need the person’s full name, date of birth, and if possible booking number.

Acceptable means of payment are a Cashier’s Check (official check), subject to verification, a U.S. Postal Money Order or a Western Union Money Order, made out to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. NO CASH IS ACCEPTED.

Suffolk County Arraignments

CentralBookingINFOLOGOWhen Does Someone See A Judge In Suffolk County?

Are you looking for someone arrested in Suffolk County?

Suffolk County is a big place.  If you are trying to find a person who was arrested in Suffolk, you may want to call the police station nearest to where in Suffolk County the person was arrested.  When a person is arrested in Suffolk County, they are taken to one of the following places:

  • A Suffolk County Police Precinct
  • A Village Police Department
  • An East End Town Police Department

Even if someone is arrested by a Village Police Department, that person will usually be taken to the Suffolk County Police Department (SCPD) for additional processing.

Click Here for a list of Police precincts in Suffolk County (SCPD Addresses).

Click Here for a list of phone numbers to SCPD Precincts.

Click here for a list of Criminal Courthouses in Suffolk County and to find the address of a Court in Suffolk.



In New York City, people who arrested go from the Police Station to Central Booking. In Suffolk County, there is no Central Booking. However, the person should still be arraigned at the Courthouse within 24 hours of arrest.  However, unlike New York City, where there can be a huge backlog of people being processed, a Suffolk County defendant can be processed and arraigned pretty quickly, many times in the same day and within hours.  Unlike arraignments in New York City, which go from the morning until 1am, arraignments in Nassau and Suffolk go until 5pm.  A person arrested is arraigned in the District Court Arraignment part.

What is an Arraignment?
An arraignment is when someone who has been arrested sees a Judge to enter a plea. At the arraignment the Court will also set a bail. In some cases, no bail is set. In Suffolk County, after someone is arrested, that person is often interviewed by the Department of Probation. The Suffolk County Department of Probation will then make a recommendation regarding the need for a bail to the Court based upon the interview with the person arrested. The person’s lawyer will make what is called a bail argument.  Please note that sometimes in Suffolk County, people are arraigned without an attorney representing them.

In Suffolk County, the District Court Arraignments take place seven days a week in Courtroom D-11. Each day, arraignments in Suffolk County start at 9:30.

Looking for Court Information?
Suffolk County District Court has a recorded information phone number.  The Suffolk County Court Number is a good starting point for finding information relating to a Suffolk County Criminal Case or Suffolk County Arraignment.  The number is 631-853-7500.

New York Criminal Lawyer Oeser-Sweat, P.C.

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!

New York City Criminal Lawyer Oeser-Sweat, P.C.

WHAT IS AN ARRAIGNMENT???

An arraignment is when the Court officially takes jurisdiction over a case.Now they have a file, with a DOCKET NUMBER, a
Complaint set forth by the District Attorney and they have your loved one in custody.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.Arraignments usually happen from 9am to 1am – 7 days a week (except Staten Island/Richmond County).

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.


WHERE IS THE COURTHOUSE?

You can use google maps to get directions to the Courthouse.Here are the addresses:

County) Criminal Court: 100
