Sex offenders are required by law to notify local law enforcement of any changes in their information. These changes must be entered into the state sex offender database and the national sex offender database so that their records remain up-to-date. A sex offender is a person who has been found guilty of a sex-related crime such as sexual assault, incest, and prostitution. If you want to know if there are any sex offenders living in Tippah County, you can search the Mississippi Sex Offender Registry. Keep in mind that there may be cases where you may only view last known addresses of offenders. This is because not all offenders obey the registration law.

Bail and Bondsman

If a person is arrested for an illegal offense, he may deposit money or put down property with the court in exchange for his temporary release while awaiting trial. This is called bail and used by the court to ensure that the defendant will appear in court when the trial starts. The defendant gets the money/property back after the trial, minus some court fees. However, he forfeits the bail if he does not show up as promised.

If a person cannot afford bail, he can use the services of a bail bondsman. A bondsman can act as a surety in exchange for a fee. This fee is 10% of the bail amount and cannot be refunded.
