Visitors must wear appropriate clothes and they must submit a valid photo ID as a proof of documentation. Any visitor with a prior record of felony or probation would face a denial of visitation.

Bail and Bondsman

When an offender is taken into police custody, the court schedules a bail hearing where the severity of the offender’s crime is determined. An offender on trial will appear before a magistrate who will order release from custody on the person’s personal recognizance or on the execution of cash or property bond. If the magistrate assumes that an unconditional release from custody will ensure the appearances of the offender, the magistrate will deny a bail opportunity.
