Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

According to the law, sex offenders must advise law enforcement of any updates in their information so that it may be entered in the national and state sex offender databases. The definition of a sex offender is as an individual who has been found guilty of a criminal offense involving sex such as molestation, child pornography, and rape. To locate any sex offenders in Kentucky, you can access the state’s sex offender registry in this website. It is important to note that not all sex offenders comply with the registration law. There may be search results that show previous addresses of offenders or just the neighborhoods that they live in.

Bail and Bondsman

Once a person is charged with a criminal offense, he may be temporarily released from custody or jail until the trial begins. This is what the court means by bail. Before he can be granted bail, an accused must guarantee that his presence in court any time it is required. For certain defendants and crimes, the court may require an additional promise – the pledge of money or property. If the defendant violates his promise, he loses the money or property to the court.

Defendants who have trouble posting bail because of money issues can hire a bondsman for 10% of the bail amount. A bondsman is a person who can act as a surety. He will sign the bond that guarantees the full payment of the bail amount by him if the defendant fails to show up as promised.

The state of Kentucky prohibits the practice of commercial bail bonding. 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). A bonds agent from a different state needs to get a warrant before he can arrest a fugitive in Kentucky. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
