Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

A person who has been found guilty of a criminal offense involving sexual motivation is called a sex offender. These crimes include rape, child molestation, sex trafficking, and child pornography. According to the law, these offenders must register with the state and national sex offender databases for purpose of public safety.In Kentucky, residents are able to discover the sex offenders residing near them by using the registry on this website.

Please keep in mind that some sex offenders may not update their registration. Thus, you may find that some entries contain the last known addresses of offenders or incomplete address such as only the block where the offender lives on.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is when the court permits an accused individual to be released from custody or jail as he waits for his trial to begin as long as he will appear before the court at all of his scheduled appearances. For certain crimes, the accused may be required to lodge money or property to the court to further ensure his appearance in court. If the individual fails to show, the money or property will be forfeited

If the accused cannot make bail because of a lack of funds, he/she can use the services of a bondsman. The bondsman will sign the bond and will be held responsible by the court to pay the bail amount if the accused misses his court date.

In Kentucky, there are no commercial bail bond businesses because the state has outlawed the industry. 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 another state needs to arrest a fugitive currently hiding out in Kentucky, he is required by law to obtain a warrant first. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
