An individual is categorized as a sex offender if his conviction is for a sexually motivated crime such as rape, child pornography, and prostitution. You can visit here if you want to locate sex offenders residing near you in the state of Tennessee. Please take note that the state cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information in the registry because some offenders may fail to register. You may find some addresses in the system that are no longer valid or some entries may be incomplete such as just the block where the offender resides.

Bail and Bondsman

A person arrested for an illegal offense can get released from jail or custody through bail. The person’s temporary release is allowed as long as he guarantees his presence at his trial. Some kinds of bail involves pledging money or property as a form of assurance to the court. Missing a court appearance will mean forfeiting the money or property. A bondsman can post bail on behalf of an individual if he lacks the funds to do it on his own. If the individual misses his court date, the bondsman will be the one liable for paying the entire bail amount. The bondsman’s fee is usually non-refundable and equal to 10% of the bond.
