Notes of Decisions

Where state's violation of this section was not of constitutional proportions, defendant's confession which was voluntarily given after legal arrest was not required to be suppressed. State v. Jenks, 43 Or App 221, 602 P2d 681 (1979)

Where defendant was not arraigned within 36 hours as required by this section but was arraigned after appointment of attorney, noncompliance with this section did not result in denial of due process. Barnes v. Cupp, 44 Or App 533, 606 P2d 664 (1980), Sup Ct review denied

Where petitioner appeared in district court on an information charging attempted burglary in first degree and being an ex-convict in possession of concealable firearm, proceeding was not for arraignment as term is used in this section. Shipley v. Cupp, 59 Or App 283, 650 P2d 1032 (1982)

Language of this statute creates liberty interest in freedom from incarceration without speedy pretrial procedures. Oviatt v. Pearce, 954 F2d 1470 (1992)
