Whatever attorney was present wth you at the time of arraignment received copies of all these documents.  They are available to you; all you need to do is contact your attorney and ask him or her for a copy.  If you cannot get them from your attorney, you can go to the court clerk where the case is pending and make a reuest there.

I can't tell from your question what state your question pertains to. I registered on this site to answer questions for South Carolina. If your question pertains to SC, then the first thing I have to point out is that I think you have gotten your terminology confused. There is no such thing as a "pre-arraingment deposition" in SC. My guess is that you are referring to a bond hearing. Or, you are asking about submitting a Discovery request. I'm really not sure what your asking for. If you want something that took place in court, you can try calling the court and asking how you can go about getting the transcripts. I hope that helps.

If you had an Attorney at the time then your attorney should have that information. If not, then you must speak with the clerk of the Judge you were before to obtain that information.
