Federal law states that all sex offenders must be registered in the state and national sex offender databases in the interest of public safety and awareness. A sex offender is a person who has been convicted of a sex crime. What constitutes a sex crime may differ between states but there are certain crimes that are generally accepted as sex crimes such as rape, sexual assault, and sex trafficking. Residents of Rhea County who want to locate sex offenders in their neighborhood can visit https://www.tn.gov/tbi/section/tennessee-sex-offender-registry. Please keep in mind that the state cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information in the system. Some offenders do not update their registration. As a result, you may find some records containing last known addresses or incomplete ones.
Bail and Bondsman
If you are charged with a crime in Rhea County, you can stay out of jail while waiting for your trial to start. This is possible when the court grants you bail – an exchange of money or property that will serve as a form of collateral which is supposed to guarantee your return to court. If you miss a court date, the money or property is forfeited.
If you cannot afford to post bail, you can hire a bondsman to do it for you for a 10% fee. This fee is non-refundable. For example, if your bail is set at $10,000, you will need to pay the bondsman $1000.
