Ask Your Own Criminal Law Question

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.
