Is this a state or federal charge?
The only thing to do before the arraignment is to start looking for an attorney. The arraignment is just when they formally inform you of the charges and set the bond.
Arrange for bond. However, you may want to speak to some attorneys first because some will do the bond as a part of their fee and, in addition, if you make the bond then the court may not appoint an attorney.
