The definition of a sex offender is a person convicted of a crime involving sex, including rape, molestation, and production or distribution of child pornography.

You can access this information online for Lancaster County by going to this link, but bear in mind that searches sometimes reveal primary last known addresses or, rather the block that they live on. You are also required to accept a disclosure to use the database.

Bail and Bail Bondsman

There is no commercial bail in Nebraska

Upon your arrest in Nebraska, bail is set by a judge. You must post bail yourself without use of a bail bondsman if you want a temporary release. Nebraska does not allow commercial bail bonds. Bondsman from other states are unable to assist you in Nebraska. Nebraska has their own state run bail bond program. This means that if you want to post bail instead of staying in jail until your trial you must do so yourself or tell a family member or friend to come directly to the jail. In the State of Nebraska you will pay cash for the full amount of the bail at the jail in person. You will then be released from the County Jail. Another option may be contacting a criminal defense attorney, which you should probably do anyway depending on your situation. Always seek counsel if unsure of what to do upon your arrest. If you cannot afford counsel, it will be appointed for you.
