Sex Offender Search and Lookup

According to federal law, a sex offender must register his information in the state sex offender database and the national sex offender database. The definition of a sex offender is a person with a conviction for a sex offense such as rape, child molestation, and incest. Anyone can access the location of sex offenders in Menard County by going to the Sheriff’s Alert page. Bear in mind that some of the information in the registry cannot be guaranteed as accurate. Some offenders fail to comply with the registration law. As such, you may view records that only list the last known address of an offender.

Menard County Sheriff’s Alert:

Bail and Bondsman

The money or property pledged by a defendant or his family/friends to the court in exchange for his temporary release is called bail. The court will use this as collateral to ensure that the defendant will return for his trial. If he fails to appear, bail is revoked and forfeited.

A defendant who cannot afford to post bail on his own can pay a bondsman to do it on his behalf. A bondsman typically charges 10% of the bail amount. Unlike bail, this fee is non-refundable.
