Criminal Cases and Probation

Information on Criminal cases for the 42-2 District Court - New Baltimore.

Criminal cases

Arraignment is the first court procedure in every criminal matter. A plea is entered by the defendant (guilty, not guilty, or stand mute) and a bond is set. The purpose of the bond is to ensure that the defendant will appear in court on the designated court dates. 

Attorneys are appointed for defendants who cannot afford to hire representation on their own. Repayment to the County for court appointed counsel may be required as part of the sentence/probation.  All defendants will be represented by an attorney at their Arraignment.
