Bedford Justice Court Information for People Accused of Crimes
A judge will be brought to the Bedford courthouse to preside over the criminal court arraignment. At the arraignment, the judge will decide whether to set bail. Bail is an amount of money that must be posted with Westchester County before a person will be released. If you have cash at Court when bail is set, you can post it there. If you don't have bail money immediately in cash, you will need to post it at the Westchester County Jail. At the jail, you can pay in cash or (within limits) by credit card.
Generally, the arraignment will happen in Bedford within 24 hours of the arrest. If possible, arrangements should be made to obtain a criminal defense lawyer for the arrest process in Bedford.
