Before you start using the website to locate offenders, please take the time to read and understand the disclaimer provided. The Sheriff’s Office cannot guarantee that all information in the database is completely accurate because some sex offenders still fail to follow the law. As such, you may get results that will reveal incomplete addresses such as an address that only contains the block where the offender lives. You may also find some information is no longer current such as an offender’s last known address.

Bail and Bondsman

Depending on the crime committed, an accused individual in Muskingum County may be granted temporary release from jail while awaiting trial by the court. This is done through the posting of bail – an amount of money or property that is pledged to the court to serve as a guarantee that the accused will follow the conditions of his release. If any of the conditions are violated, the bail amount is automatically forfeited.

Individuals who are unable to post bail due to financial constraints may use the services of a bondsman. For a fee (usually 10% of the bail), the bondsman will pay the rest of the bail amount to the court. He or she will also be held responsible should the individual fail to appear during his trial.
