Sex Offender Search and Lookup

Federal law mandates that all sex offenders must have their information recorded in the state sex offender database and the national sex offender database. A sex offender is defined as a person who was convicted for a sexually oriented offense such as rape, sexual assault, and sex trafficking. You check the Illinois Sex Offender Registry for sex offenders living in Christian County. Please take note that you may view records that only reveal previously known addresses. This can be due to the failure of some offenders to comply with the registration law.

Bail and Bondsman

A pretrial inmate is allowed to stay out of jail if he was able to post bail. Bail is the money or property lodged with the court that will be used to guarantee the defendant’s appearance in court once the trail starts. Failure to appear means the money will be forfeited.

If a defendant is financially unable to post bail, he can use the services of a bondsman. The bondsman can act as a surety for a non-refundable fee. This fee is typically 10% of the bail amount.
