Sex offenders are required by law to provide their information to local law enforcement for entry in the state sex offender registry and the national sex offender database. These systems are utilized to monitor the offenders as well as increase public safety.

Locating this type of offender in Clay County can be done by visiting the Sheriff’s Alert page. It is important to bear in mind that the information in the registries cannot be guaranteed as 100% accurate. Not all offenders comply with the law. Some of the search results you view may only list the offender’s last known address.

Bail and Bondsman

The temporary release of a pretrial inmate is granted by the court once bail has been posted. Bail the pledge of money or property made to the court which will serve as collateral to guarantee the defendant’s return for his trial. If the inmate misses a court date, the money is forfeited.

A defendant who has money problems may not be able to post bail on his own. For 10% of the bail amount, he can pay a bondsman to do so on his behalf. A bondsman’s fee, however, is not refundable no matter what the outcome of the case is.
