It is often waived if the person has a lawyer.
You can be held until you make bond or the case is disposed. The cops file charges within 48 hours generally but you can be charged up until the time the statute of limitations runs out.

You plead either guilty and be sentenced in accordance with the law, or plead not guilty and set future hearings and trial.
No amount of free 'tips and hints' from here or elsewhere are going to effectively help in a legal defense.
If you don't know how to represent yourself effectively against an experienced prosecutor intending to convict, then hire an attorney who does, who will try to get a dismissal, charge reduction, diversion, programs, or other decent outcome through motions, plea bargain, or take it to trial if appropriate.
If serious about hiring counsel to help in this, and if this is in SoCal courts, feel free to contact me. I'll be happy to help fight and get the best outcome possible, using whatever defenses and sympathies there may be.
