Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Violators of laws incorporating sex-related offenses must register in the countrywide and in the statewide maintained registries. To be classified as a sex offender a person must have committed a typical sex crime, such as rape, distribution of child pornography, molestation, or a kidnapping crime. If you want to see details about sex offenders registered in Chariton County visit the state sex offender registry. It is regularly updated with information about sex offenders with compliant and those with noncompliant status. Please note that some data may be missing and that the resource is not 100% accurate at all times.

Bail and Bondsman

Some arrested persons get the opportunity to remain out of custody until the trial date comes. In this case, the judge issues a court order and sets bail. Bail is the amount which the offender must post at court to get free. Bail amount are often high, and not many offenders have that amount of money to post as a guarantee. In such situation, a bondsman can assist by posting the amount on the offender’s behalf. Bondsmen ask for a minimum of 10% fee of the bail amount to deliver the service. A collateral may also be required. If you get the bail from a bondsman and fail to get to court when scheduled, you will be “hunted” and arrested by a bounty hunter engaged by the bonding agency.
