Question: when you get arrested in maricopa county when do you get to see a judge?

Answer:

Please see the following link to Maricopa County's website.

The County's website states the following regarding timing for court appearance after arrest:

"This is the first time a suspect appears in court. An initial appearance for a person in custody must be held within 24 hours of arrest. A summons with the date and time of the initial appearance is sent to individuals not in custody.

At the initial appearance, four important events take place:

* The suspect is informed of the felony allegations.

* The person is advised of the right to an attorney. If the court finds the person cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed.

* Conditions of release are established. This means the court will determine if the person shall be released on bond or on their own recognizance, or remain jailed for the safety of the community.

* Another court date is set for the next proceeding, usually in Justice Court or Superior Court.
