Manhattan Drunk Driving Defense Attorney

MANHATTAN DWI ARRAIGNMENTS

Manhattan Drunk Driving arraignments are done on the first floor at 100 Centre St. New York, NY. At the arraignment, you will be formally presented with the charges against you and bail will be determined. If this is your first DWI arrest, most judges will not set any bail and release you on your own recognizance and told to come back at a later date. If this is not your first Drunk Driving arrest, you can expect some bail to be set.

The biggest factor that judges look at is criminal record and if you have ever missed a court date in the past. Many important things happen at the arraignment. The prosecutor may make an offer that may be attractive, but you should not plead guilty at the arraignmet because you have not had an opportunity to review all of the evidence against you. Arraignments are done seven days a week from 9 am to 12 am. If you need a Manhattan arraignment lawyer, contact us at 917-519-8417.
