What is an SCI?

Many times I am asked what is an SCI in a criminal matter. An SCI occurs when an individual who is charged with a felony decides while a case is pending in a lower justice court to take a plea to a felony charges and the matter is moved to county court for a plea to be entered. A plea for a felony matter can only be made in a county court. In order for a case to be brought before a county court an indictment must be entered or the case can be moved to county court pursuant to an SCI. An SCI is a Superior Court Information and permits a case to be moved to county court for purposes of entering a plea.
