Annotation: PART OF THE CRIMINAL PROCEDURES MODULE OF A COURT PERSONNEL TRAINING PROGRAM, THIS VIDEOTAPE DISCUSSES ARRAIGNMENT FROM THE PERSPECTIVES OF A JUDGE AND A COURT CLERK.
Abstract: THIS TAPE IS BASED ON CALIFORNIA LAW AND MAY NOT BE APPLICABLE TO OTHER STATES. A JUDGE DISCUSSES THE PURPOSE OF ARRAIGNMENT, THE NECESSITY OF INSTRUCTING THE DEFENDANT OF HIS CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, AND THE SIGNIFICANCE OF 'HOW' A JUDGE CONDUCTS THE ARRAIGNMENT PROCEEDING. THE PROGRAM RECAPS THE PRE-COURT AND CALENDARING PROCEDURES THAT MUST TAKE PLACE BEFORE A CASE GOES TO ARRAIGNMENT, AND LOOKS AT THE VARIOUS IN-COURT DUTIES PERFORMED BY THE COURTROOM CLERK DURING THE ACTUAL PROCEEDING. IN ADDITION TO THE PRE-COURT AND INCOURT PROCEDURES PERFORMED BY THE COURT'S SUPPORT STAFF, A VETERAN COURTROOM CLERK TALKS ABOUT THE SPECIAL RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE JOB FOR INSURING A SMOOTH AND EFFICIENT COURTROOM OPERATION. FOR THE COMPLETE SET OF THE SKYLINE COLLEGE COURT SUPPORT, PERSONNEL PROJECT VIDEOTAPES, SEE NCJ-35823-25, 36202-28, 36230, AND 36231. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT)
