Arraignment - Distinction From Other Pretrial Proceedings

bail combine hearings

Two other pretrial proceedings, bail hearings and preliminary examination hearings, are also sometimes confused with arraignments. Contributing to the confusion is the practice of some state and federal courts to combine the arraignment with other pretrial proceedings. For example, a jurisdiction might choose to combine arraignment with a bail proceeding, particularly if the accused has not appeared earlier on similar charges contained in a criminal complaint.
