Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

According to federal law, all sex offenders must have their information registered in the state and national sex offender registries. In addition, they are required to update their information whenever needed. The public is able to access these registries because it will help increase safety and awareness. An individual who has committed a crime involving sex such as rape, sex trafficking, and molestation is categorized as a sex offender. The people living in Kentucky can visit here to view the sex offenders residing in the state. Please note that there may be search results revealing information that is no longer current. For example, you may come across an offender’s previously known address. This is because some offenders fail to comply with the law.

Bail and Bondsman

Whenever an individual is charged with a crime in Lewis County, they may be able to stay out of jail while they wait for their trial date to come up. Bail is the court’s permission to allow this temporary release with the condition that the individual must show up at his trial. In some cases, the court will add another condition – the pledging of money or property to the court. This serves as an additional guarantee because if the defendant misses a court date, he loses the money or property.

For those who are unable to post bail because they don’t have enough money, they can secure the services of a bondsman. The bondsman is an individual in the business of posting bail on behalf of defendants. This means that he will be the one paying the entire bail amount if the defendant does not show up in court. In return for this service, he will charge the defendant a non-refundable fee that is equal to 10% of the bail amount.

The state of Kentucky does not allow 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). If a bondsman from a different state wishes to arrest a fugitive who has fled to Kentucky, he is required to obtain a warrant first. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
