Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

All sex offenders are mandated by federal law to register their information with local law enforcement. Their information is then entered into the sex offender databases managed by the state and the federal government. The law defines a sex offender as a convicted person whose crime involves sex such as rape, child molestation, and prostitution. The Tennessee sex offender registry can be visited here. It is important to bear in mind you may see entries that list last known addresses of offenders instead of current ones. This is because some offenders do not obey the registration law.

Bail and Bondsman

An inmate can be granted temporary release from jail by the court while the trial has yet to start if he can guarantee that he will be present at all his scheduled court appearances. If he does not show up, he is labeled a fugitive. This process is called bail. Some charged individuals, however, will be required by the court to do more than just make a promise. They need to lodge money or property with the court before they are able to secure their release. If they do not show up, they lose the money or property.

A bondsman can serve as a “stand-in” for an accused individual if he fails to appear before the court as promised. What this means is that the bondsman will be held responsible by the court to pay the entire bail amount if the defendant skips bail. People who hire bondsmen are those who lack the funds or property to post bail. They do, however, have enough money or property to pay the bondsman his non-refundable fee, 10% of the bail amount.
