How does EDC Work?

After the Initial Appearance, the County Attorney decides if a case should go to EDC. If the case is right for EDC, it is set for the court at an EDC session. At that EDC session, the defendant is arraigned, and a plea agreement is offered by the County Attorney. If the defendant accepts the plea agreement, sentencing will occur that day or an EDC session. If the defendant does not accept the offered plea agreement, there are two options. More time is allowed to reach a plea agreement by the next EDC session, or the case is set for a traditional court session.
