Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

The NY appellate division held that there should be no more than 24 hours between arrest and arraignment absent a showing of good cause from the DA as to why arraignment could not be held within that time. Failure to arraign without good cause would result in release, but it does not mean that charges cannot still be pursued against the arrested subject.
