Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Federal law mandates that all sex offenders must give their information to the County Sheriff or local police department to be entered into the national and state sex offender registries. A sex offender is a person who has been convicted of a sexual offense as rape, child pornography, and molestation. If you wish to locate any sex offenders in Anderson County, you can visit here.

It is important to note that sometimes the information in the registry is no longer current such as an offender’s last known address. This may occur because some sex offenders fail to update their registration.

Bail and Bondsman

If a person is charged with a crime, he may be able to stay out of custody or jail while awaiting trial if the court grants bail. This means that he will be required to sign a bond stating that he will appear before the court at all his scheduled court appearances. In some cases, money or property will also need to be pledged to the court as an added assurance. The defendant loses the money or property once he misses a court date.

A bondsman is an individual who acts as a surety for individuals who are unable to post bail due to financial reasons. This means that the bondsman will take responsibility of paying the entire bail amount if the defendant does not show up in court. To hire a bondsman, you will need to pay a non-refundable fee normally set at 10% of the bail amount.
