Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

All sex offenders have their information recorded in the state sex offender registry that has jurisdiction where they live as well as in the national sex offender database maintained by the federal government. People classified as sex offenders are those who have been convicted of a sexually motivated crime such as rape, sexual assault, and child pornography. Information on sex offenders living in Kentucky is accessible online by visiting here. However, it is important that the public understands that sex offenders may not always comply with the law. Thus, some searches may show results that are no longer accurate such as an offender’s last known address.

Bail and Bondsman

When a person is charged with a crime and incarcerated while waiting for his trial, there is a way that he can be granted temporary release. This is done through a bond set by the judge. There are several different types of bonds. Typically, a monetary value is assigned to the bond which may require payment in full, partial payment, or payment through the use of owned property. If defendant misses his court date, then the money paid is forfeit. If there is still a remaining bail amount that wasn’t paid, then the person who signed the bond is held liable to pay that amount.

A bondsman is an individual who can aid people who are unable to post bail due to lack of money. He will act as a surety, signing the bond and guaranteeing to the court that he will assume the burden of payment if the court date is missed. The bondsman will charge the defendant (or his family and friends) a non-refundable fee, usually 10% of the bail amount.

Kentucky has passed a statute banning the practice of commercial bail bonding in the state. 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). Fugitives who are currently in Kentucky cannot be arrested by bonds agents from other states without a warrant. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
