To get data on sex offenders residing in McDowell County, you can go to

The disclaimer should be read and understood prior to accessing the data. While the government believes the information to be accurate, some offenders may not notify local law enforcement of any changes in their information. Thus, you should bear in mind that you may get search results listing last known addresses instead of current ones.

Bail and Bondsman

In McDowell County, a defendant is allowed to stay out of jail while awaiting trial as long as the bail has been posted. Bail is the bond that needs to be paid to the court (either in the form of money or property) which will be used to ensure that the defendant shows up at all of his/her scheduled court dates. Failure to do this will mean that the bond is forfeited.

A bondsman is a surety, someone who secures the bail on behalf of the defendant. Pretrial inmates who are unable to post bail due to money problems can hire a bondsman to help secure his/her release. The bondsman will require a fee which is usually 10% of the bail amount. This is non-refundable.
