Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

A sex offense is a crime involving sexual motivation such as rape, prostitution, and sexual assault. A person convicted of such a crime is labeled a sex offender and mandated by law to register his information in the state sex offender database and the national sex offender database. Locating sex offenders in Dyer County can be done by visiting the Sheriff’s Alert page. Make sure to read the disclaimer thoroughly before using the registry. Bear in mind that some of the records in the database may not contain current data, only last known addresses.

Bail and Bondsman

A defendant can wait for his trial to start out of jail. This is possible if the court grants bail and he is able to pay it. Bail is the money that will be used by the court to ensure that the defendant does not flee while out of custody. He will get his money back minus any court fees after the trial as long as he attended all of his court dates. Failure to appear means he will lose the money and be labeled a fugitive.

A bail bondsman is in the business of posting bail for defendants who cannot afford it on their own. He charges 10% of the bail as his non-refundable fee. Once hired, he will sign a bond with the court and become responsible for paying it if the defendant skips bail.
