Inmate Search in Miami County Jail

The Miami County Jail does not maintain an online list of incarcerated inmates. The State of Kansas, however, offers statewide inmate search, with the Kansas Criminal Justice Information System through the Kansas Adult Supervised Population Electronic Repository (KASPER), with filters like First, Last and Middle Names, KDOC Number, Social Security Number, State ID (KBI) Number, and Advanced Search (Race, Gender, Birth Date, Age Range, Conviction County, Parole Supervision County, CC Supervision Location, Facility (Inmates Only), Supervision Type. Each inmate file contains their Names, Birthdates, Demographics (Eye Color, Hair Color, Height, Weight, Gender, Race), Current Status reported by Dept. of Corrections, Convictions (County, Case Number (I), Offense Date, Sentencing Date, ACS, Criminal Conviction Description, Counts, Crime Severity Level, Case Status (II), State), KDOC Physical Location History(s) (Location, Movement Date, Movement Reason), KDOC Disciplinary Report(s) since January 1996 (Date, Class, Location, Type of report). To inquire, it’s best to personally visit the Jail at 118 S. Pearl, Paola, KS or call them at 913-294-4444.

The current jail was built in 1967, and, at one time, included living quarters for the sheriff and his family. Today, those living quarters have been converted into office and storage space for the department. Originally, the jail was designed to house 42 inmates, but in the early-1990s, per state corrections’ standards, the facility was limited to house 22 inmates. To avoid the demands of overcrowding, the jail division currently farms its inmates out to three area county jails. Currently, the Miami County Jail processes approximately 1,000 inmates annually. The head of the Jail Facility is Marsha Courtney.

Sex Offender Search and Lookup

All registered sex offenders are registered on either a national or state sex offender database. The people on these databases have been convicted of a sex or kidnapping crime. The definition of a sex offender is a person convicted of a crime involving sex, including rape, molestation, and production or distribution of child pornography.

You can access this information online for Miami County by going to this link, but bear in mind that searches sometimes reveal primary last known addresses or, rather the block that they live on. You are also required to accept a disclosure to use the database.

Bail and Bail Bondsman

A bond is a monetary guarantee that a defendant will show up in court when ordered by a judge. The defendant signs his bond which is a written promise that if he does not show up as required he will forfeit the bail amount to the court along with any fees. For all practical purposes there is no difference between a bond and bail. A cosigner or bondsman may also sign and post bond on the defendant’s behalf, giving the court additional assurances that the defendant will make his court appearances.

Kansas accepts the following types on bond.

Cash Bond. The defendant gives the money to the court to get his release. The money is returned at the end of the trial if the defendant completes their court responsibilities.

Personal Recognizance. This is also referred to as own recognizance or a signature bond. This allows the defendant to get out of jail without posting cash or assets as securities

Surety Bond. This involves participation of a professional surety, a bondsman. The bondsman promises the court the defendant will appear or the bondsman will pay the court the amount of the bond.

Cash Deposit. Ten percent of the bond amount is given to the court up front. Most of the money is returned at the end of the case if the defendant takes care of all his court responsibilities.

Property Bond. The deed to a home or real estate is signed over to the court to guarantee the defendant’s participation in their court orders. This is fairly uncommon.
