An arraignment is done after an arrest and booking and the DA decides to charge the crime - those charges shall be presented and arraigned within 48 hours of booking.
i was arrested in april 2011 and was not sent an arraignment date until december 2012 and to this date have not been arragned
This means that you have not actually been charged with anything. They could bring charges later, but as of right now, it appears the process to bring charges. The requirement that you need to have arraignment within 48 hours is because of your right to speedy trial.
However, if you are not being held in custody, then there is nothing really to do at this point but ignore it and hope the charges are just dropped.
i am fight the case in court right now and it has cost me two forty-thousand bonds
If you are fighting the case in court, then you would have had to be arraigned. Arraignment is where the charges are read and you enter a plea.
