Alternative Pleading

v. to arraign is to call the defendant to the court after filing of charges against him and before any legal procedure is commenced in the case. He is given a copy of indicment and told the charges brought against him and is supposed to either confess or plead not guilty, though other peremptory pleas can also be made by him.
