Federal law stipulates that sex offenders must notify local law enforcement of any changes in their information so that their records in the state and national sex offender registries can be updated. Sex offenders are individuals who have been found guilty of an illegal offense involving sexual misconduct such as sexual assault, child pornography, and prostitution. Residents of Johnson County can go to

to get information on sex offenders living in their neighborhood. Make sure to read the disclaimer provided. Because not all offenders update their registration, you may find that some of the information in the files are no longer current such as last known addresses.

Bail and Bondsman

The money put down as collateral with the court in exchange for an accused individual’s temporary release from jail is called bail. It will be used to ensure the defendant shows up at his trial once it starts. Failure to appear will mean forfeiting the money.

If the defendant cannot come up with the money for bail, he can pay a bondsman to secure his release instead. A bondsman typically charges 10% of the bail amount for his services. Once hired, the bondsman can act as a surety, guaranteeing payment to the court if the defendant fails to appear as promised.
