Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

The definition of a sex offender is a person who has been convicted of a sex offense such as prostitution, rape, and child pornography. Federal law requires this type of offender to have his information recorded in the state sex offender registry and the national sex offender registry. Locating sex offenders in Ballard County can be done by visiting the Kentucky State Sex Offender Registry. Keep in mind that the information in the database cannot be guaranteed as 100% accurate because some offenders fail to register their information.

Bail and Bondsman

The court is able to grant temporary freedom to an accused person awaiting trial if he is able to pledge money or property as a guarantee for his return to trial. This pledge is called bail. It will be returned to the defendant after the trial minus some court fees. Failure to return as promised will mean forfeiting the bail and being labeled as a fugitive.

A bail bondsman can be hired to post bail for a defendant who cannot afford the amount set by the court. However, unlike bail, his fee which is 10% of the bail amount cannot be refunded.

In the state of Kentucky, commercial bail bond companies are no longer allowed to operate. Ky. Stat. § 431.510 (outlawing commercial bail bond industry); see Stephens v. Bonding Assoc. of Kentucky, 538 S.W.2d 580 (Ky 1976) (upholding statute). An out-of-state bondsman is only allowed to catch a fugitive in Kentucky if he has procured a warrant. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
