Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

To be labeled a sex offender, a criminal must have been convicted of a sex crime. While what classifies as a sex crime will differ between states, there is a general consensus that certain offenses such as rape,  sexual assault, and child molestation are all sex crimes. Based on the law, a person classified as a sex offender must have his information registered in the state and national sex offender databases for the sake of public safety.  To locate any sex offenders living in Kentucky, you can visit this site.

You may find that some entries in the system are no longer accurate (i.e. last known addresses). This is because some offenders do not comply with the law when it comes to updating their registration.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail allows an accused person to stay out of jail for the remainder of the time before his trial starts. This is allowed by the court as long as he can assure them that he will return once the trial begins. Sometimes, the court may require more than just a promise from the accused. They may require money or property to be put down as a form of collateral thereby increasing the probability that the defendant will show up at all his scheduled court appearances. If he doesn’t, the money or property will be lost.

If the defendant is unable to post bail because of financial problems, he can use a bondsman to serve as a surety. This means that the bondsman guarantees payment to the court if the defendant does not show up at any of his scheduled court appearances. In return for his guarantee, the bondsman will charge the defendant 10% of the bail amount. This fee is non-refundable.

In Kentucky, the commercial bail bonding industry has been outlawed. Ky. Stat. § 431.510 (outlawing commercial bail bond industry); see Stephens v. Bonding Assoc. of Kentucky, 538 S.W.2d 580 (Ky 1976) (upholding statute). Once a fugitive has fled to Kentucky, a warrant will be required before he can be arrested by a bondsman from out of state. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
