Sex Offender Search and Lookup

A sex offender is an individual who has been found guilty of a crime involving sexual misconduct such as rape, prostitution, and child pornography. The law requires a sex offender to submit his information to local law enforcement for entry into the state sex offender registry and the national sex offender registry. Anyone can locate sex offenders in Douglas County by visiting the Sheriff’s Alert page. Keep in mind that you may encounter records containing last known addresses of offenders but not current ones. This is because some offenders do not submit their information.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Alert:

Bail and Bondsman

A defendant can lodge money with the court to remain out of custody while awaiting trial. This is known as posting bail. The payment will be used by the court to secure the defendant’s return for his trial. When the trial starts and the defendant fails to appear, then he loses the money and is labeled a fugitive.

If the defendant is unable to post bail for financial reasons, a bondsman can be hired to act as a surety. For 10% of the bond amount, he will sign the bond with the court and secure the defendant’s temporary release. Unlike bail, this fee is non-refundable.
