Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Persons convicted of committing or attempting to commit a sexually oriented offense such as rape, sodomy, and sex trafficking are classified as sex offenders. These individuals are mandated by law to notify the Sheriff’s Office whose jurisdiction they reside in. The information is entered into a database by the law enforcement agency so that the public may have access to information regarding sexual predators in their vicinity. The federal government maintains a separate database containing all information regarding registered sex offenders nationwide.

Please keep in mind that the data in the registry cannot be guaranteed as 100% accurate as some sex offenders may not follow the law. In some cases, you may only receive information regarding an offender’s neighborhood or his last known address.

Bail and Bondsman

If an individual is charged with a criminal offense, the court may allow temporary release from custody of the accused while awaiting trial. This is called bail. The release is set with a condition – a pledge of money that will guarantee the appearance of the defendant in court. If he or she fails to appear, the money will be forfeit.

For individuals who are unable to post bail, a bondsman can be hired. A bondsman is an individual who will act as a surety, securing the release of the accused and allowing himself to be held liable by the court to pay the bond should the defendant fail to meet the conditions of his bail. In return for such a service, the bondsman will require the payment of a non-refundable fee, 10% of the bail amount, as well as a collateral on the rest of the bail amount.
