What types of offenses have inmates in the prison committed?

As a county prison, we handle inmates that are:

  • Awaiting transport to a state correctional facility to serve their sentence
  • Brought in as pre-trial and unable to make bond, inmates who are sentenced by a District Magistrate for either a summary offense or a Misdemeanor of the 3rd degree
  • In violation of a civil proceeding such as domestic relations orders; i.e. child support, or violated a Protection from Abuse order
  • In violation of conditions of their probation or parole or
  • Serving County sentences for crimes they have been convicted or pled guilty tor

Changes in State law provide for the prison to house juveniles who have committed certain criminal offenses and the District Attorney has decided to try as an adult.
