What will happen at the court arraignment?
Normally, a victim does not need to be present for an arraignment. However, if an emergency Restraining Order was obtained, the arraignment and the hearing to extend the order would be held at the same time and victims would need to be present. If the victim does need to be present at the arraignment a Victim Witness Advocate will assist them through this process.
