Rule 125. Arraignment
Arraignment shall be conducted in open court and, unless waived by the
defendant, shall consist of reading the complaint to the defendant or stating
to him the substance of the charge and calling on him to plead thereto. Where
the defendant has not been served with a copy of the complaint, the judge shall
give him the complaint for the purpose of examining and reading it before he is
called upon to plead.
