A person is considered a sex offender if he/she has been found guilty of a sexual offense such as rape, sex trafficking, and child pornography. Visit to search for sex offenders in Mercer County.

Keep in mind that you may get search results showing last known addresses of offenders. This may be caused by the offender’s failure to update his/her information in the registry.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the money or property signed over to the court’s keeping as a form of collateral to secure the temporary release of a pretrial inmate. The bail is used to guarantee that the defendant will return to court for the trial and follow all the terms and conditions of the court order. If the defendant violates the conditions of his release, then the bail is forfeited.

A bondsman is in the business of posting bail on behalf of pretrial inmates who cannot afford to do so on their own. He typically charges 10% of the bail amount as his fee. This is non-refundable.
