Early Disposition Court


"The fastest way out of an ugly situation"

What is Early Disposition Court (EDC)?

Early Disposition Court, or EDC, is a court hearing designed to bring criminal cases to resolution with the fewest possible court appearances. The goal is to make the criminal justice system more efficient by providing a quick disposition to the case while still protecting the rights of all parties involved. In Maricopa County, cases filed in EDC involve victimless charges of possession of illegal drugs for personal use and/or paraphernalia. With these cases many defendants are ordered to participate in substance abuse treatment programs in lieu of prosecution.

How Does it work?

After the Initial Appearance (the first hearing after an arrest), the County Attorney decides if a case should go to EDC. If the case meets the criteria for EDC, a hearing is set for 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 another 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. Phoenix Bail Bonds (602) 267-9057

Finding The Best Bail Bonds Company

Best Phoenix Bail Bonds Company

When shopping for a bail bonds company in Phoenix, most people go to the internet. In fact, the internet or word of mouth may be the only way you'll find a bondsman - the yellow pages are obsolete.

Most bail bond companies have Google local listings and/or websites where you can find phone numbers, services offered, addresses and reviews. Beware of bail bond reviews, most of them have become totally unreliable or fake. The hard fact is, most people are embarrassed to use a bondsman - no one likes to talk about a family member's trouble with the law, let alone leave a public review. When you see a bail bond company with as many reviews as well known restaurants, be skeptical – better yet, run.

So, what do you look for in a bail bondsman?

* Choose a company that has been in business at least 5 years (less than 45% of insurance companies make it to their 5th year and only 1/3 makes it to their 10th).
* Ask how long the bail bond agent helping you has been licensed.
* How well does the agent know their business and how well can he/she explain the process to you? An experienced agent should clearly and confidently answer any question you may ask. If you don’t understand them, walk away.
* A good bondsman won’t fast talk you or sound like a used car salesman.
* If you are still unsure, check for complaints registered with the AZ Dept of Insurance: 602-364-2499.

All of our agents have a minimum of 8 years of experience.

Guilt or Innocence

Guilty or innocent it doesn’t matter.

Whether you committed a crime or didn’t do it - bail bonds are provided to any client that can put up the required collateral and pay the fee. Risk is an important factor to a bondsman when issuing a bond; this is why bail bonds in Phoenix are secured with collateral. Collateral is property or cash that is held as security against the bond – it acts as a guarantee that the Indemnitor on the bond has the ability to cover any loss that the bondsman may incur. Loss occurs when a bond is forfeited by the court for the defendant’s Failure to Appear. Looking for a bail bond? We would be happy to explain the process to you.

Preliminary Hearing

Preliminary Hearing

Every defendant charged with a felony has the right to a Preliminary Hearing. A preliminary hearing is held to determine whether the defendant should face trial on the charges alleged in the complaint. At the hearing, the prosecutor presents a magistrate with evidence that would lead a reasonable person to conclude that the accused individual has committed the crime. The Judge can find probable cause and order the defendant to stand trial, or dismiss the case based on a lack of probable cause.

Per 16A A.R.S. Rules Crim. Proc., Rule 5.1, a preliminary hearing must be held before a magistrate no later than 10 days after the defendant's Initial Appearance if the defendant is in custody, or no later than 20 days after the defendant's Initial Appearance if the defendant is not in custody, unless:
(1) the complaint is dismissed;
(2) the hearing is waived;
(3) the defendant has been transferred from the juvenile court for criminal prosecution on specified charges;
(4) the magistrate orders the hearing continued; or
(5) the court made a probable cause finding at a bail eligibility hearing under Rule 7.2(b)(4).
