Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

A sex offender is mandated by law to give his information to local law enforcement for record purposes. The information is listed in the state sex offender registry and national sex offender registry to help increase public awareness and safety. A person is considered a sex offender if he has been convicted of a sex crime. Some examples of a crime involving sexual conduct include rape, incest, and prostitution. Residents of Knox County can locate sex offenders in their neighborhood by visiting the Sheriff’s Alert website. Keep in mind that the Sheriff cannot guarantee that the information in the registry is 100% accurate. This is because some offenders may not register their information as the law requires. Because of this, you should keep in mind that some of your search results may list last known addresses instead of current ones.

Bail and Bondsman

To get out of jail while awaiting trial, a defendant must first post bail – money or property pledged to the court as guarantee that the defendant will attend all of his court dates. Bail will be returned to the defendant minus court fees once the trial is done. However, if he fails to appear in court, the bail is forfeited.
A defendant who cannot afford to post bail can use a bail bondsman’s services to get out of jail. A bail bondsman can sign a bond with the court that will secure the release of a defendant. He charges a non-refundable fee which is usually set at 10% of the bail amount.
