Initial Appearance Stage
During the “Initial Appearance” stage, the presiding judge will perform several important tasks. These include verifying your true name and address, informing you of the charges filed against you, explaining your constitutional rights, considering any statements or input from the victim regarding the matter of Release (which typically applies to assault and domestic violence cases), and determining the conditions of your “Release.” For detailed information about the four types of release, please refer to our resource on the subject.
