Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Federal law mandates that all sex offenders must present themselves to local law enforcement upon their release. Their information will be gathered and submitted to the state and national sex offender registries for the purpose of increasing public safety. According to the law’s definition, a sex offender is a person who has been found guilty of a sexually oriented offense such as rape, sexual assault, and prostitution. People living in Tennessee can access the state’s sex offender database here. Please take into account that not all sex offenders follow the registration law. You may find that some entries are no longer current such as last known addresses of offenders. In some cases, you may encounter partial addresses such as just the block where an offender’s residence is located.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is when the court allows a charged individual to leave custody or jail and remain free while waiting for his trial to start. This is done with the understanding that the defendant will show up in court when his trial starts. For some individuals, the court may ask for an additional guarantee – a pledge of money or property that will be forfeited if they fail to appear in court as requested.

A defendant that cannot post bail because of money problems can hire a bondsman to help him out. For a fee, the bondsman will guarantee payment of the entire bail if the defendant misses a court appearance. The fee is non-refundable and is typically equal to 10% of the bail amount.
