9:10 a.m. David Graves is already at his office in Sheffield Lake City Hall reviewing overnight police reports. Someone’s in jail for domestic violence. Graves knows he will have to maneuver his schedule a bit to get to court for an arraignment in this case. For the layperson, an arraignment is typically held within 24 hours of an arrest. This is where a defendant hears charges being brought against him or her, bail is set and a pretrial date is scheduled. As prosecutor for the city, Graves works closely with Sheffield Lake police Chief Tony Campo and arresting officers as he determines charges to be brought against an individual.
