Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Federal law stipulates that sex offenders notify local law enforcement whenever they have any changes in their information so that their records in the state and national sex offender registries are updated. Sex offenders are criminals who have convictions for sex-related crimes such as rape, sexual assault, and sex trafficking. Anyone can go to https://www.tn.gov/tbi/section/tennessee-sex-offender-registry if they wish to find out if any sex offenders live in Tipton County. However, you must always keep in mind that some offenders do not obey the registration law. There may be search results that show last known addresses instead of current ones.

Bail and Bondsman

An inmate can be granted freedom from custody while awaiting trial if he is able to post bail. Bail is the money or property that is lodged with the court as a form of collateral. The court will keep the money/property for the duration of the trial to ensure that the inmate returns to court. If he doesn’t, his money or property is lost.

A bondsman can help an inmate post bail if he does not have enough funds to do it on his own. In exchange for claiming responsibility for paying the entire bail amount, the bondsman will charge 10% of the bond amount as his fee. This is non-refundable.
