Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Federal law states that sex offenders need to submit their information to local law enforcement for entry into the state sex offender database and the national sex offender registry. The label of sex offender is given to a person with a conviction for a sex offense such as rape, incest, and child pornography. Searching the Tennessee Sex Offender Registry will enable anyone to locate sex offenders residing or working in Lauderdale County. You must first read and accept the disclaimer given before you use the registry. Keep in mind that sometimes there may be records that appear to only list the previous residential address of an offender.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the money pledged to the court to get a defendant out of jail while he is still awaiting trial. The defendant is released with the condition that he will appear at all of his scheduled court appearances. The money is held in the court’s keeping to ensure that this condition is met. Violating this condition means forfeiting the money and being labeled a fugitive.

A bondsman is a person who helps post bail on behalf of defendants who cannot afford it on their own. He usually charges a non-refundable fee that is equal to 10% of the bail amount.
