Thank you for using JustAnswer!
I am sorry to learn of your circumstances. No, your being a Captain should not have any bearing on the arraignment. What will have a bearing is the presence of any family at the arraignment.
At the arraignment, she will be informed of the charges and possible max. penalty.
She will be asked if she's going to hire an attorney, represent herself, or ask for court
Unless she indicates that she's going to hire an attorney or ask for court appointed-counsel, she will be asked how she pleads: guilty/not-guilty.
Then the judge/magistrate will set bond. Some of the things the judicial offer will take into account is: past criminal
history, likelihood of conviction, family support, seriousness of the charges, threat to the community, any substance abuse/mental health issues, likelihood of the person to come back to court, etc.
Good luck and best wishes! I hope that you find this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!
