Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

A sex offender is required by law to provide his information to local law enforcement for filing in the state sex offender registry and national sex offender registry. A sex offender is defined as someone who has been guilty of a sexually oriented crime such as sexual assault, rape, and incest. To get data on sex offenders residing in Whitley County, anyone can visit the Sheriff’s Alert website. While the information in the registry is believed to be accurate, some offenders may not update their registration as the law requires. Because of this, you should keep in mind that some of your search results may list last known addresses instead of current ones.

Bail and Bondsman

In Whitley County, a pretrial inmate is granted temporary freedom from custody if bail has been posted. Bail is the money that needs to be paid to the court which will be used to guarantee that the defendant shows up at all of his scheduled court appearances. The money is returned after the trial, minus court fees, if the defendant keeps his word. Failure to appear will mean that the bond will be forfeited.

A bondsman is someone who is in the business of securing the temporary release of a pretrial inmate who cannot afford bail on his own. The bondsman charges a non-refundable fee for his services which is usually equal to 10% of the bail amount.
