Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

A criminal is classified as a sex offender when his offense involves sexual conduct against an individual without their consent. Some examples of these offenses include rape, sexual assault, and child pornography. Based on federal law, after a sex offender is released from his term of confinement, he/she must notify local law enforcement so that his/her information is registered into the state’s sex offender registry. Their information will also be entered into the national sex offender registry that is maintained by the federal government. The public is allowed to access the information within these systems for the sake of safety and awareness. To find sex offenders living in Kentucky, you can go to the state’s sex offender registry here.

Some entries in the registry may no longer be updated since not all sex offenders register their information. In some cases, you may see last known addresses or lists showing just the block where an offender resides.

Bail and Bondsman

A person charged with a criminal offense does not always have to stay in jail while waiting for his trial to start. The court can allow him to secure his release through bail. Bail is the process which involves an accused promising the court to be present at his trial after he is released from custody/jail. Aside from the promise, the court may ask him/ her to pledge money or property to the court. He/she will lose it if he/she does not show up in court as promised.

If a defendant cannot deposit the money or property required by the court to post bail, he can get a bondsman to do it for him. For a fee, a bondsman will inform the court that any bail that must be paid to the court should the defendant fail to appear will be paid by him. The fee is usually between 8-10% of the bail amount. It is also non-refundable.

In Kentucky, running a commercial bail bond business is not allowed. 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). An out-of-state bondsman who wants to apprehend a fugitive in Kentucky must get a warrant first. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
