Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

The law commands sex offenders to register their information in the national and state sex offender databases to help increase public safety and awareness. A person is categorized a sex offender if he or she has been found guilty of a criminal offense involving sex such as rape, child molestation, and sex trafficking. The state of Kentucky maintains an online registry of sex offenders here.

Take note that the accuracy and completeness of the information in the database cannot be guaranteed by the state. This means that there is a probability that some information may no longer be current such as an offender’s address.

Bail and Bondsman

An inmate who is able to secure release from custody or jail while waiting for his trial to begin is considered to be “out on bail.” This temporary release is granted by the court as long as the defendant guarantees his presence during the trial. For some, an additional guarantee in the form of money or property is required. Should they miss one of their court appearances, they will lose the money or property they pledged to the court.

A bonds agent is an individual who services defendants who are unable to post bail due to lack of money. He will charge a non-refundable fee that is normally equal to 10% of the bail. In return, he will post bail on the defendant’s behalf, guaranteeing to the court that the entire amount will be paid by him if the defendant does not show up.

Bonds agents are not allowed to practice in Kentucky because commercial bail bonding is considered illegal. 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). In order to arrest a fugitive who has run away to Kentucky, an out-of-state bonds agent must get a warrant first. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
