Once released from jail, you will be given a large amount of information and paperwork.  In that paperwork will be a notice from the Court you have been assigned to ordering you to come to court for your first appearance. The first appearance in Court is usually for the Judge to ask you if you are hiring an attorney and for the Judge to impose bond conditions in your case, if applicable.  You must go to all court settings unless told otherwise by the Court or your attorney.  Failure to appear in Court could result in a warrant for your arrest and additional charges.
