Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

According to federal law, all sex offenders must give their information to local law enforcement to be registered in the state and national sex offender databases. These systems are utilized to keep track of sex offenders for the purpose of public safety. A sex offender is a person who has been convicted of a sex crime. The definition of a sex crime varies based on state laws. However, there are certain offenses involving sexual conduct that are widely accepted as sex crimes such as rape, sexual assault, and sex trafficking. Residents in Kentucky can use the state’s sex offender registry here to locate any sex offenders living in their neighborhood. Bear in mind that there are some sex offenders who fail to update their registration. You may get search results that contain last known addresses or just the block where an offender’s house is located.

Bail and Bondsman

Once a person is charged with a criminal offense, he may be able to secure his release as he waits for his trial through bail. There are several types of bail. Depending on the gravity of the offense, an individual may be able to get out of jail by simply signing the bond that states his promise to be present at his court date. Other types of bail will require an additional guarantee from the individual – money or property to be paid to the court if the individual misses his court date.

A bondsman is an individual who can help a defendant post bail if he does not have enough money to do it on his own. The bondsman will put his signature on the bond, letting the court know that the burden of payment will be on him if the defendant fails to appear in court. The fee of a bondsman is typically set at 10% of the bail amount and cannot be refunded, no matter what the outcome of the case may be.

The commercial bail bonding industry has been outlawed in the state of 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). A fugitive who has run away to Kentucky can only be apprehended by a bondsman from out of state if he secures a warrant first.. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
