Criminal Procedures and Forms

Being accused of a criminal or serious traffic offense can be a traumatic and upsetting experience. We hope this information will be of help in guiding you through the process and take some of the mystery out of the procedures. We have tried to anticipate and answer your more frequently asked questions.

Your arraignment will be scheduled within 15 days.  You will receive a summons in the mail advising you of the date and time of your arraignment.

Prior to your scheduled arraignment, you must report to the Lynnwood Police Department jail to be fingerprinted and photographed.  Be prepared to wait; fingerpriting & potos are done based on the jails availability between 11:00 am & 3:00 pm, Tuesday, Thursdays, and Saturdays.  BRING YOUR CITATION WITH YOU.
