If they are arrested, then the judge does not have to sign anything. There should be an Arraignment within 72 hours where the court will listen to the statement of facts read by the District Attorney - a plea will be required and then a bond will be set or the person released to the community on their own personal recognizance meaning without a bond.
the officers arrested him because rangers said he looked suspicious do they have to prove probable cause for the arrest?
would it be in writing or just a verbal statement in court
Thank-you, you have been more helpful than you know. Thank-you again
