Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

The law requires sex offenders to notify local law enforcement regarding any changes in their information. These offenders are defined as persons who have been found guilty of a criminal offense involving sex such as rape, sexual conduct with a minor, and sex trafficking. Local law enforcement agencies are responsible for entering an offender’s information into the state’s sex offender registry. The US Department of Justice uses the same information to maintain a national sex offender database. These databases are accessible to anyone as a safety resource.

If you want to locate sex offenders living in Kentucky, you can visit the state’s sex offender registry here. Keep in mind that the accuracy of the information in the registry cannot be guaranteed. Some offenders may not fully comply with the law. Search results may show last known addresses or incomplete ones listing just the block an offender lives on.

Bail and Bondsman

When charged with a crime, an individual may be allowed to stay out of jail while waiting for the trial to start. This permission given by the court is called bail. It is allowed with the condition that the defendant puts down money as a form of collateral, to be forfeited if the defendant misses any of his court appearances.

A bondsman is typically an agent or a company that will pledge money or property on behalf of the defendant when he or she lacks money to post bail on his or her own.  Depending on the state, a bondsman’s fee may be equal to 10% of the bail amount and cannot be refunded no matter what the outcome of the case is.

Kentucky considers commercial bail bonding an illegal act. 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). To arrest a fugitive who has fled to Kentucky, bonds agents from out of state must acquire a warrant. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
