If you are charged with solicitation, then you are probably both nervous about the pending solicitation charges and embarrassed. Don’t go to your arraignment without an attorney. Many times defendants charged with soliticitation will save money by not hiring an attorney only to find out that they could’ve had their charges reduced or even dismissed had they hired a lawyer.
Generally, judges can’t change what you are charged with, only the prosecutor can change the charges. More importantly, judges are primarily concerned with clearing off the pending cases from their calendar. A judge may have to hear over 100 cases in a single day. Also, a judge is not your lawyer and generally cannot give you legal advise.
