Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

A sex offender is defined as a person who has a conviction for a sexually oriented crime such as rape, incest, and sex trafficking. In Oregon, all sex offenders are mandated by law to register with the State Police. However, the law only allows predatory and high risk sex offenders to be listed in the Sex Offe​n​der Inquiry System which is accessible to the public. If you wish to locate these types of offenders in your neighborhood, you can search the Oregon Predatory Sex Offe​n​der Inquiry System. Be sure to read the conditions of use statement before accessing the system. Also, not all the information in the database will be accurate; some may show last known addresses.

Bail and Bondsman

In the state of Oregon, accused individuals may pledge 10% of the bail amount to the court in exchange for their temporary release from jail. This pledge is called security and, like bail, serves as collateral to ensure that the defendant keeps his word to show up in court when ordered to do so.

If the judge determines that conditional release or getting released on personal recognizance is not sufficient, he may set a bail amount based on the crime, the defendant’s criminal history, and history of violence.

Because there are several factors to consider, bail amount can vary. A $10,000-bail can be assigned to a drug possession charge while a sex crime may have a bail amount of $75,000.

If the defendant skips bail, a bounty hunter will not be involved in apprehending him. Oregon is one of 4 states that have banned the practice of commercial bail bonding. It will be the state’s justice department who will be responsible for acting as the bail bond agency.
