            (1) Except as provided in subsection (7), when an arrest is made in the county where the crime charged is alleged to have been committed, the person arrested shall be taken without unnecessary delay before a magistrate of the court from which the warrant was issued. If the arrest has been made on probable cause, without a warrant, he shall be taken without unnecessary delay before the nearest available magistrate and a complaint shall be filed forthwith.

            (2) Except as provided in subsection (7), when an arrest is made in a county other than where the crime charged is alleged to have been committed, the person arrested may be taken directly to the county wherein the crime is alleged to have been committed without unnecessary delay or at the request of the defendant he shall be taken without unnecessary delay before the nearest available magistrate. Such magistrate shall ascertain the nature of the crime charged in the warrant and the amount of the bond, if any, endorsed on the warrant. If no warrant for the arrest of the person is before the magistrate he shall make use of telephonic, telegraphic or radio communication to ascertain the nature of the charge and the substance of any warrant that has been issued. If no warrant has been issued, a complaint shall be filed and a warrant issued in the county where the crime is alleged to have been committed, and the nature of the charge, the substance of the warrant, and the amount of the bond shall be communicated to the magistrate before whom the defendant is in custody. Upon receipt of such information, the magistrate shall proceed as hereinafter provided.

            (3) The magistrate shall fix the terms and conditions of the appearance bond upon which the defendant may be released. If the first appearance is before a magistrate in a county other than where the crime is alleged to have been committed, the magistrate may release the defendant on an appearance bond in an amount not less than that endorsed on the warrant. The defendant shall be required to appear before the magistrate who issued the warrant or a magistrate of a court having jurisdiction on a day certain, not more than 14 days thereafter.

            (4) If the defendant is released on an appearance bond to appear before the magistrate in another county, the magistrate who accepts the appearance bond shall forthwith transmit such appearance bond and all other papers relating to the case to the magistrate before whom the defendant is to appear.

            (5) If the person arrested cannot provide an appearance bond, or if the crime is not bailable, the magistrate shall commit him to jail pending further proceedings or shall order him delivered to a law enforcement officer of the county where the crime is alleged to have been committed.

            (6) The provisions of this section shall not apply to a person who is arrested on a bench warrant. Such persons shall without unnecessary delay be taken before the magistrate who issued the bench warrant.

            (7) If a person is arrested on a warrant or arrested on probable cause without a warrant, pursuant to a violation of subsection (a)(1)(C) of K.S.A. 21-5808, and amendments thereto, such person shall not be allowed to post bond pending such person's first appearance in court provided that a first appearance occurs within 48 hours after arrest. The magistrate may fix as a condition of release on the appearance bond that such person report to a court services officer. Nothing in this section shall be construed to be an unnecessary delay as such term is used in this section.

            (3) The defendant shall not enter a plea at the preliminary examination. The defendant shall be personally present and except for witnesses who are children less than 13 years of age, the witnesses shall be examined in the defendant's presence. The defendant's voluntary absence after the preliminary examination has been begun in the defendant's presence shall not prevent the continuation of the examination. Except for witnesses who are children less than 13 years of age, the defendant shall have the right to cross-examine witnesses against the defendant and introduce evidence in the defendant's own behalf. If from the evidence it appears that a felony has been committed and there is probable cause to believe that a felony has been committed by the defendant, the magistrate shall order the defendant bound over to the district judge having jurisdiction to try the case; otherwise, the magistrate shall discharge the defendant. When the victim of the felony is a child less than 13 years of age, the finding of probable cause as provided in this subsection may be based upon hearsay evidence in whole or in part presented at the preliminary examination by means of statements made by a child less than 13 years of age on a videotape recording or by other means.

            (4) If the defendant and the state waive preliminary examination, the magistrate shall order the defendant bound over to the district judge having jurisdiction to try the case.

            (5) Any judge of the district court may conduct a preliminary examination, and a district judge may preside at the trial of any defendant even though such judge presided at the preliminary examination of such defendant.

            (6) The complaint or information, as filed by the prosecuting attorney pursuant to K.S.A. 22-2905 and amendments thereto, shall serve as the formal charging document at trial. When a defendant and prosecuting attorney reach agreement on a plea of guilty or nolo contendere, the defendant and the prosecuting attorney shall notify the district court of such agreement and arrange for a time to plead, pursuant to K.S.A. 22-3210 and amendments thereto.

            (7) The judge of the district court, when conducting the preliminary examination, shall have the discretion to conduct arraignment, subject to assignment pursuant to K.S.A. 20-329 and amendments thereto, at the conclusion of the preliminary examination.
