Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

A sex offender is defined as an individual who has been found guilty of a sex offense such as incest, sex trafficking, and rape. The law mandates that this type of offender must have his information registered in the state sex offender database and the national sex offender database. Information on the sex offenders living in Essex County can be found on the Sheriff’s Alert page. Bear in mind that you may get search results showing last known addresses of offenders instead of current ones. This is because some offenders do not submit their information for registration.

Bail and Bondsman

In New Jersey, a person charged with a crime is no longer granted temporary release from prison while awaiting trial using the cash bail system. Instead, the state makes use of a risk assessment tool that will calculate the risk of letting the defendant out of jail while awaiting trial. It will try to predict whether, based on the defendant’s information, he will commit a crime and/or flee or appear in court and not harm the community. A high score will mean getting detained while the trial is still pending while a low score will recommend release.
