Your first appearance on a criminal matter is called an arraignment. At that time, you will be advised of your rights and will be asked to enter a plea. If you enter a plea of not guilty, the matter will be set for trial. If you enter a plea of guilty, you may be sentenced at that time or the judge may elect to continue the sentencing to a later date.
