If you get arrested, the initial arraignment will usually be scheduled within 48 hours of the arrest. In cases that occur over the weekend, the defendant will typically have to wait until Monday to see a judge. At this time, you will be informed of the official charges. You will be reminded of your right to counsel. You will most likely be asked if you have a lawyer, or if you need a public defender. The judge will also decide whether or not to set bail, and if so, how much. According to Miss. R. Crim. P. 15.1, Arraignment, unless waived by the defendant, shall be held within thirty (30) days after the defendant is served with the indictment.
