Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced criminal lawyer.
The judge would have the power to do that, but it's not customary.
If that's your situation and you have posted bail, you need to contact the clerk of the case and see if that was actually done. Otherwise, missing your arraignment is going to lead to a warrant for your arrest and the loss of the bail money.
If that's not what you were asking, please clarify and I'll be happy to add to my answer.
