Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Federal law states that all sex offenders must be registered with the state and national sex offender registries in the interest of public safety. A sex offender is defined as a convicted individual whose crime is classified as a sexually motivated crime such as rape, sexual assault, and child pornography. The sex offender database of Tennessee is accessible to the public here. Keep in mind that you may yield search results showing last known addresses of sex offenders. This is due to some offenders’ non-compliance with the registration law.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is when a charged individual is allowed to be released from custody or jail while his trial is pending as long as he will present himself before the court at all his scheduled appearances. For some defendants, an additional guarantee may be required by the court. They will be asked to lodge money or property in order to secure their release. Missing one court appearance will result in the forfeiture of the money or property.

If the defendant is unable to come up with the money required for posting bail, he can pay a bondsman to secure his release. The bondsman will guarantee payment to the court of the entire bail amount if the defendant misses his court dates. In return for this guarantee, the bondsman will charge a non-refundable fee equal to 10% of the bail amount.
