to view data on sex offenders residing or working in Lawrence County. Read and acknowledge the disclaimer provided before using the registry. As some offenders do not register their information, be advised that you may see records that do not have current information such as residential addresses.

Bail and Bondsman

The court requires a defendant to pay a certain amount of money if he wishes to be temporarily released from jail while awaiting trial. This money is called bail. It will be used by the court to make sure that the defendant shows up at his trial once it begins. The defendant loses the money if he misses a scheduled court appearance.

If the defendant cannot post bail due to financial problems, he can still get released from jail with the help of a bondsman. A bondsman can act as a surety for a fee which is equal to 10% of the bail amount. Keep in mind that this fee cannot be refunded.
