Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Federal law stipulates that sex offenders must notify local law enforcement of any changes in their information to be recorded in the state and national sex offender registries. A sex offender is a person who was convicted of a crime involving sexual conduct such as rape, sexual assault, and child pornography. The state of Tennessee monitors all sex offenders currently residing or working in the area using the sex offender database here. The public is given access to this information to promote public safety and awareness. However, it is important to take note that not all offenders notify law enforcement about any changes in their information. Some of your search results may reveal previously known addresses.

Bail and Bondsman

A person arrested for an illegal offense in Jefferson County can be granted bail by the court. This means that he can secure his temporary release as long as he pledges money or property to the court as a guarantee that he will appear in court at his trial. The money or property is forfeited if the defendant violates the conditions of his release. A defendant that cannot post bail due to a lack of funds can hire a bondsman to act as a surety. The bondsman charges a non-refundable fee which is equal to 10% of the bond amount.
