    Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

    A person is classified as a sex offender if he has been found guilty of a sexually oriented offense such as rape, prostitution, and sex trafficking. This type of offender is mandated by law to notify local law enforcement of any changes in his information for records purposes. The changes must be entered into the state sex offender registry and the national sex offender registry to keep his record updated. Anyone who wishes to locate sex offenders in Mercer County can use the Sheriff’s Alert page. Keep in mind that not all offenders update their registration so you may see last known addresses filed in the system. Also, you will need to read the disclaimer before using the registry.

    Bail and Bondsman

    Getting released from jail after being charged for a crime is possible through bail. Bail is the money lodged with the court in exchange for the defendant’s release while awaiting trial. It will serve as a form of “security deposit” to ensure the defendant will show up in court once the trial begins. The money is returned minus any court fees after the trial. But if the defendant misses a court appearance, he forfeits the bail.

    A bail bondsman can secure the release of a defendant who cannot pay it on his own. The cost of this kind of service is usually 10% of the bail amount. Unlike bail, however, this fee cannot be refunded.
