These systems are used to track the movements of these offenders for the purpose of increasing public awareness and safety. The definition of a sex offender is a person with a conviction for a sexually motivated crime such as rape, sexual assault, and prostitution. To locate sex offenders in Perry County, you can visit the Sheriff’s Alert page. Take note that not all sex offenders obey the registration law.

    Bail and Bondsman

    Bail is the money or property lodged with the court for the temporary release of a defendant awaiting trial. It will be used to guarantee the defendant’s appearance at all of his court dates once the trial begins. If the defendant violates the conditions of his release, he loses the money and is labeled a fugitive.

    A defendant can use the services of a bail bondsman if he cannot afford the bail set by the court. A bondsman can act as a surety in exchange for 10% of the bail amount. This fee is non-refundable.
