Sex Offender Search & Lookup

A sex offender is required by law to submit his information to local law enforcement for recording in the state sex offender registry and the national sex offender registry. An individual is classified as a sex offender if he or she has a conviction for a sex offense such as sexual assault, prostitution, and incest. Anyone can locate sex offenders in Schenectady County if they visit the New York State Sex Offender Registry. Bear in mind that some search results may only list last known addresses instead of current ones. This is because some offenders do not comply with the law.

Bail and Bail Bond Agents:

A pretrial inmate is granted temporary release from jail by the court if bail has been paid. Bail is the amount of money or bond that the court will use as collateral to secure the defendant’s appearance at all of his court dates. After the trial, a refund will be issued by the court minus a 3% administrative fee. However, bail will be revoked and forfeited if the defendant fails to appear in court as promised. If bail cannot be paid, the defendant remains in custody until he is released, the trial is over, or the case has been dismissed.
The courts of New York will only accept the exact amount of payment for bail because they do not give change. If necessary, individuals may use several forms of money to make the payment. The list of acceptable forms of money are as follows:

  • US Cash
  • Cashier’s Check (cannot be more than the bail)
  • Bank or Western Union Money order (each order must not be more than $1000)
  • Credit Card (will have to pay an additional 8% processing fee)
  • Debit Card
    A bond agent offers to post bail for defendants who cannot afford to do it on their own. This service requires the payment of a fee which is non-refundable. The New York State Insurance Department regulates bond agents and their fees so calculating the fee is easily done using the tiered system below:
    A $200 bond or less has a fee of $10.
    A $3000 bond or less has a fee equal to 10% of the bail amount
    A bond of $3001-$10000 has a fee equal to 10% of $3000 and 8% of the remaining amount.
    A bond of more than $10000 has a fee 10% of $3000, 8% of the amount between $3000-$10000, and 6% of the remaining amount.
    Here’s an example. To calculate the bond fee for a $15000 bond, you must use the computation below:
    (10% x $3000) + (8% x $7000) + (6% x $5000) = $1160
