Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Federal law requires sex offenders to be registered in the national and state sex offender databases. The public is allowed access to this information as a safety resource. An individual who has been found guilty of a sexually oriented offense is classified as a sex offender. Each state may have differences in the crimes they will classify as sexually oriented offenses. However, there are specific crimes that are generally accepted as such. These include rape, sex trafficking, and child pornography. Anyone can use Kentucky’s sex offender registry here. However, it is important that the public keeps in mind that some sex offenders fail to update their information. Some search results may only list last known addresses of offenders rather than the current ones.

Bail and Bondsman

The court can grant its consent to the temporary release of a person charged with a criminal offense while his trial is pending. This permission is called bail. The defendant is asked to promise to be present at all of his scheduled court appearances and will sign a bond as proof. For some cases, a pledge of money or property is required in addition to the promise. The money or property is lost if the defendant fails to keep his promise.

A bondsman is an individual who can post bail for defendants who lack the funds to post bail themselves. The bondsman charges a fee equal to 10% of the bail amount. It is non-refundable. In return, he will act as a surety. The court will hold him responsible for paying the entire bond if the defendant fails to appear in court.

Commercial bail bonding is banned in Kentucky. 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). Bonds agents from other states will need to get a warrant if they want to arrest a fugitive who has fled to Kentucky. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
