What Happens After Someone is Charged and Taken to Monmouth County Jail
These are all very serious offenses and could land the Defendants behind bars for up to a decade. The Defendants were most likely taken to the Monmouth County Jail pending their Central Judicial Processing Hearing. During this hearing, the Defendants will be advised of their rights and notified whether or not the State will be filing for detention. If the State files for detention, the Defendants will remain in custody pending a formal detention hearing. During this hearing, it will be the State’s burden to establish by clear and convincing evidence that the Defendant must be detained in the county jail, without bail, pending trial. Once this hearing take places, the Defendant will be giving a Pre-Indictment Conference date. If the case cannot be worked out during the Defendant’s pre-indictment conference the case will be marked for the Grand Jury and it will be litigated throughout the traditional court proceedings.
