Sex Offender Search and Lookup:
Based on federal law, a sex offender must register his or her information with the state and national sex offender databases after his or her release from his or her term of confinement. A sex offender is someone who was found guilty of a crime involving sexual motivation such as rape, prostitution, and sex trafficking. Visit
for data on sex offenders residing in Muskegon County. Please note that you may find some records within the database containing last known addresses or incomplete addresses. This may be due to the non-compliance of some offenders with the registration law.
Bail and Bondsman
A person charged with a crime may be temporarily released from jail while awaiting trial if he posts bail. This is the money set by the court to be used as insurance, helping to guarantee that the defendant will appear at all of his scheduled court appearances. Failure to appear will result in the defendant being labeled a fugitive and his bail forfeited.
A bondsman can be hired if a defendant (or his family) cannot afford to post bail. A bondsman can act as a surety, posting bail on behalf of the defendant in order to secure his release. The cost of this service is usually 10% of the bail amount. Once paid, this fee cannot be refunded.
