What are the different types of hearings?
The first type is an arraignment: your Constitutional right, reading of the charges and entering a plea. The second type of hearing is a trial: the examination of evidence and the decisions of the issues of law by a judge to determine guilt or innocence. Warning: If you fail to appear in Court as you have promised on any misdemeanor, you may be arrested and punished by one (1) year in jail and / or a $1,000 fine, regardless of the disposition of the original charge.
