<p>If an arraignment is the result of an arrest by the Suffolk County Police, the defendant is generally arraigned in First District Court, Central Islip in courtroom, D-11.<br /><br />However, if the arrest occurs in one of the East-End towns, arraignment will occur at the appropriate Town or Village Court. <br /> <br /> An arraignment is the formal reading of the accusatory instrument, together with a setting of bail. &nbsp;Provision is made to give the defendant an opportunity to get a lawyer or, if required, one is appointed. &nbsp;Defendant is also given statutory warnings as to his or her right to counsel. <br /> <br /> After arraignment, misdemeanor cases are then adjourned to the Conference Part of the District Court. &nbsp;Cases involving felony complaints are first reviewed the District Attorney's Case Advisory Bureau (CAB). &nbsp;CAB will then, as appropriate, refer the case to a specialized bureau, reduce charges to misdemeanors, or present the case to a Grand Jury. &nbsp;CAB also conducts felony early assessment dispositions (FED's) on certain felony cases in an effort to reach appropriate dispositions of such matters.</p>
