Violent Crimes Unit - Early Plea Negotiators

Find out more about the early plea processes and Prosecuting Attorney’s Office contacts in Kent for violent and economic crime charges.

Case transfers to a trial deputy for 1 of the following:

  • Upon request for interviews
  • Upon request for redacted discovery
  • After case is set for trial

Generally, investigation by the defense, including witness interviews, does not revoke an early plea offer. Exceptions are made when a witness is a confidential informant, or a sensitive victim/witness is involved. The State reserves the right to revoke an early plea offer in other circumstances (such as a new crime is committed, additional criminal history is discovered, failures to appear, or violations of CCAP), although it strives to provide predictability and notice to the defense of any revocation.
