Unless you have hired an attorney who has waived appearance at arraignment on your behalf, you do need to appear at arraignment. Whether or not you can return home depends on whether you have any conditions of bond or pretrial release. If you bonded out you would need to consult with your bondsman before you leave the state or possibly the county. I would be happy to discuss your case with you in more detail. Feel free to call my office at 321-972-9904.
