Cetin confessed to the shooting to detectives, according to court documents released Monday by the Skagit County Superior Court.
Arraignment is a formal reading of a criminal charging document in the presence of the defendant to inform the defendant of the charges against the defendant. In response to arraignment, the accused is expected to enter a plea. Acceptable pleas vary among jurisdictions, but they generally include "guilty", "not guilty"...
In federal courts, arraignment takes place in two stages. The first is called the initial arraignment ... During this arraignment the defendant is informed of the pending legal charges and is informed of his or her right to retain counsel. The presiding judge also decides at what amount, if any, to set bail. During the second arraignment, a post-indictment arraignment or PIA, the defendant is allowed to enter a plea.
The suspect in the Washington mall shooting that killed five people may have another crime to add to his rap sheet: voter fraud.
Turkey-born Arcan Cetin is a US permanent resident, or green card holder, which means he does not hold the right to vote.
Yet state records say the 20-year-old has voted in three election cycles since 2014 — including the last presidential primary, KING 5 reported.
