Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

All sex offenders are ordered by the law to let the Sheriff’s Office know of any updates regarding their information to ensure that their files in the state’s sex offender registry as well as the national sex offender registry remain current. For the sake of public safety and awareness, sex offender information is accessible to all.

People classified as sex offenders are those who have committed and been convicted of a sexually motivated crime. The crimes classified under this category may differ per state. However, there are some offenses that are generally accepted as a sex crime such as rape, molestation, and prostitution.

If you wish to find out if any sex offenders are residing near you in Kentucky, you can access the state’s sex offender database here.

Please take into account that some offenders may not always follow the law. As such, you may get a search result showing an offender’s previously known address but not the current one. You may also get some incomplete addresses that list only the offender’s block.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is when a person accused of a crime is released from custody or jail while waiting for court proceedings on his case to start with the condition that the defendant will appear on his scheduled day in court. For added insurance, some defendants will be required to pledge money which will be forfeited if they violate the condition.

A bondsman can be secured to post bail on behalf of the defendant if he or she is unable to come up with the money. A bondsman usually charges a non-refundable fee equal to 10% of the bail amount. As a surety, the bondsman will be the one held liable by the court to pay the entire bail amount if the defendant violates the condition of his release.

In Kentucky, commercial bail bonding has been outlawed. 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). Bondsmen from other states who arrive in Kentucky to arrest a fugitive hiding out in the state are required to get a warrant. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
