A: At the arraignment you will plead guilty or not guilty. Normally, you will want to plead not guilty, but depending on the jurisdiction you might meet with advisory counsel and an acceptable agreement will be offered for a guilty plea or diversion. Sounds like this might have been alleged as domestic violence. You really should consult an attorney.
