Sex Offender Search and Lookup

An individual convicted of sex-related crimes including rape, sexual assault, sexual abuse, sex trafficking, child pornography, and prostitution is a sex offender. A sex crime is any illegal activity that involves illegal or coerced sexual behavior against another person. A person may also be charged with sex crimes in states if he/she is found engaging in sexual acts like incest or bestiality. All sex offenders or sex abusers are required to get registered with the state or county’s sex offender register. Sex offenders are monitored by the state. Those who don’t register with the state may be charged with a felony.

Bail and Bondsman

If you have been arrested in Georgia on a state felony or misdemeanor charge and have a bond set, there are four ways to post bond for your release such as signature bond, cash bond, property bond, and bonding agency. Posting bond allows the defendant to leave jail while ensuring to show up to answer all charges at future court dates. If the defendant who posted bond does not show up, a warrant will be issued for their arrest.

In Georgia, the percentage a bonding agency can charge is higher than the national average of 10%. In Georgia, 12% to 15% is commonplace when it comes to the non-refundable fee amount a bonding agency will ask for their services. There are other agencies that provide lending services if the defendant does not have the money required for the bonding agency fee. Collateral such as property or vehicle is commonly used.
