Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

By law, sex offenders must have their information entered into the national and state sex offender databases. A person is categorized as a sex offender if he has been found guilty of a sexually motivated crime as sexual assault, child molestation, and child pornography. Anyone can visit this website to check for sex offenders in their neighborhood in Tennessee.

Keep in mind that some offenders may fail to follow the registration law. You may find that some entries in the database will list previously known addresses of offenders instead of current ones.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail enables a charged individual to remain free from jail while the trial still hasn’t started as long as he guarantees his appearance in court for his trial. The court may also ask for a pledge of money or property to serve as additional guarantee. If the individual misses his court date, then he loses the money/property.

If a defendant cannot post bail because of financial constraints, he can secure his release through a bondsman. If the accused fails to appear as promised, the court will hold the bondsman liable for the whole bail amount. In return for his service, the bondsman will charge 10% of the bail amount which cannot be refunded.
