A sex offender is defined as a person with a conviction for a crime involving sex such as prostitution, rape, and child pornography. Visiting the Illinois Sex Offender Registry will enable anyone to locate sex offenders in Pope County. Keep in mind that some offenders fail to register their information.

Bail and Bondsman

The court requires a deposit of money in exchange for the temporary release of a defendant awaiting trial. This deposit is held in the court’s keeping until the trial ends to secure the defendant’s appearance at his trial. If the defendant fails to show up, bail is revoked and forfeited.

If a defendant lacks money for posting bail, he can pay a bondsman to secure his release. A bondsman can act as a surety in exchange for 10% of the bail amount. However, this fee cannot be refunded even if the case is dismissed.
