Sex Offender Search and Lookup:
The law requires a sex offender to have his information filed in the state sex offender registry and the national sex offender database. This is done to help law enforcement agencies keep track of these offenders as well as to increase public safety and awareness. A sex offender is defined as a person with a conviction for a sex offense such as rape, prostitution, and child pornography. In Posey County, you can locate sex offenders residing in the area by visiting the Sheriff’s Alert page. Take note that not all offenders will submit their information. As such, you may find that some of the records in the registry only list last known addresses.
Bail and Bondsman
For a pretrial inmate to get released from jail, he or she must post bail. This is money or property required by the court as collateral that will guarantee the defendant’s appearance in court once the trial begins. The court will refund the bail after the trial minus court fees. However, the court gets to keep the bail if the defendant fails to appear as promised.
If the inmate cannot post bail due to financial difficulties, he can still secure his release through the help of a bail bondsman. A bondsman can act as a surety in exchange for a non-refundable fee. This is usually set at 10% of the bail amount.
