The disclaimer must be read first before the database can be utilized. Some offenders do not comply with the law and so you may get search results that only show last known addresses of offenders.

Bail and Bondsman

The money deposited with the court in exchange for a defendant’s temporary release from jail while his trial is still pending is called bail. The court will utilize this money to help guarantee the defendant’s return once the trial begins. The bail is revoked and forfeited if the defendant does not appear in court.

A defendant who cannot come up with the money for bail can still be granted temporary freedom if he uses the services of a bondsman. For a fee, a bondsman can sign a bond with the court to secure the release of a defendant. The fee is usually 10% of the bail amount and cannot be refunded.
