Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

According to federal law, a sex offender is required to register his information at the state and national sex offender database. The law also defines a sex offender as a person who has been found guilty of a sex crime such as rape, prostitution, and child pornography. If you want to locate sex offenders in Washington County, visit

Keep in mind that you may encounter some records that only have last known addresses listed. This is because some offenders do not obey the registration law. Also, make sure to read the disclaimer provided.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the money that a pretrial inmate deposits with the court in order to be granted temporary release from jail. The court will utilize this as a form of insurance for the defendant’s return for his trial. If the conditions of his release are violated, the defendant forfeits the money.

If the defendant cannot afford the bail, he or she can hire a bondsman who will act as a surety in return for a non-refundable fee. The cost is usually 10% of the bail amount.
