Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Sex offenders must have their information registered in the national and state sex offender databases according to the law. Anyone can access the information in these registries as their purpose is to increase safety and awareness. A sex offender is an individual who has been convicted of an illegal act that involves sexual misconduct against another individual with the use of force, manipulation, or threats. While there are some differences on how states classify criminal offenses as sex crimes, there are some offenses that are widely accepted by all as such. These include rape, child molestation, and sex trafficking. Visit here if you wish to locate any sex offenders living in Kentucky. Bear in mind that some search results may show previous addresses of sex offenders instead of their current ones. This is because some sex offenders do not update their registration.

Bail and Bondsman

A person who is accused of a crime is allowed to get out of police custody or jail while awaiting trial if the court allows him to post bail. This means that the defendant is released based on his promise to be present at all his required court appearances. In some instances, the gravity of the charge requires the court to place additional conditions to the bail. This could be a monetary value or property that the defendant must lodge with the court. If the defendant does not appear as promised, he will lose his money or property to the court.

A bondsman is hired when the defendant and his family cannot come up with the money to post bail. A fee of 10% the bail amount is typically charged in return for the bondsman’s guarantee that he will pay the entire bail amount if the defendant fails to appear in court. The fee is also non-refundable, even if the charges are dropped or the defendant is found not guilty of the crime.

Commercial bail bonding is not practiced in Kentucky because it is prohibited. 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 coming from out of state will require a warrant if they wish to arrest a fugitive hiding out in Kentucky. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.

    Very very important: I was recently released from LMCD and with my property was a box of Narcan (2 count). Unfortunately I relapsed shortly after arriving home. This was not an out of the ordinary event but the following has forever changed my life. This particular day, moment, time etc. was when everything was just perfect for my overdose. I have never overdosed due to using responsibly (as much as I possibly can). Within seconds of entering my body, I turned blue, stopped breathing and was going no where but down. My boyfriend and close friend had just discussed how I received a new box of Narcan as an exiting gift.. a joke then but my life saver now and forever. If I had not had the box given by the jail, I would not be able to let others know about how simple and convenient Narcan is and I want to thank LMCD for taking the time to ensure those that are likely to use again, are more likely to overdose, are given a life saving tool. This minor yet so major item is a crucial key in my decision of getting and staying sober. I want to live, I want to live my life.
