Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

All sex offenders must have their information entered into the state and national sex offender registries. A sex offender is a person who has been found guilty of a sexually oriented crime such as rape, sexual assault, and child molestation. If you want to find out if any sex offenders are residing in DeSoto County, you can visit.

The disclaimer provided must be completely read and understood before using the database. Some offenders may fail to follow the registration law which can result in some entries showing only the last known addresses of offenders.

Bail and Bondsman

Once you are charged with a crime, you can get out of jail while waiting for your trial by paying the bond set by the court. This process is called bail. The court will ask for money or property to be pledged to it as a guarantee that you will appear before the court once the trial starts. If you miss an appearance, you lose the money/property.

If you don’t have enough funds to post bail, you are allowed to use the services of a bondsman. In return for paying him 10% of the bail amount, he will act as a surety on your behalf. If you skip bail, he will be the one held responsible for paying the entire bond.
