Pre-Indictment Conference

Facing a Pre-Indictment Conference in Mercer County NJ

A Pre-Indictment Conference (PIC), also known as Early Disposition Conference (EDC) or Pre-Indictment Program (PIP), is an initial court appearance whereby the prosecution will generally be making their initial plea offer. PIC is only available for those charged with indictable offenses, also known as felonies. Anyone charged with a disorderly persons offense (misdemeanor) would not be eligible for a PIC. It is important to note here that not every indictable case receives a PIC hearing and whether or not a Defendant receives a PIC hearing is in the sole discretion of the prosecutor’s office.Read More
