If someone is being arraigned (brought in from jail), and gives a statement in front of the judge without the opportunity to obtain a lawyer and his right to stay silent has not been stated, can the court legally take his statement into consideration and use it against him?

Most likely that statement would be suppressed. Hopefully the presiding judge is different from the arraignment judge. Write or call me with any other questions.
