Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

According to federal law, sex offenders must be registered in the state and national sex offender databases for the purpose of increasing public awareness and safety. A sex offender is defined as an individual who has a conviction for a sex offense such as rape, prostitution, and sex trafficking. Sex offenders living in Jefferson County can be found at

Please read the disclaimer provided before using the registry. Keep in mind that you may get search results showing last known addresses. This is because not all offenders obey the registration law.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the money lodged with the court so that a defendant is granted a “get-out-of-jail-free” card while his trial is still pending. The money will serve as a form of insurance. If the defendant fails to appear in court once the trial starts, the court gets to keep the money.

If a defendant does not have enough funds for bail, he can use the services of a bondsman to secure his release. A bondsman can facilitate the temporary release of a defendant by acting as a surety. The cost of his services is 10% of the bail amount.
