Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

All registered sex offenders must be listed in the national and state sex offender databases according to federal law. A sex offender is defined as an individual who has been found guilty of a sexually motivated crime. Some examples of such a crime include rape, molestation, and child pornography. Anyone can access this information online for Whitley County by visiting this site. However, do bear in mind that some results may reveal residential addresses that are no longer current or addresses that only list the block that an offender lives on. This is because some sex offenders refuse to comply with the law.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the written permission of the court to allow an accused individual to remain free while awaiting trial. This is granted as long as the accused can promise his appearance in court whenever it is requested. For certain offenses, a monetary value is attached to the promise which may require the deposit or pledge of money or property to the court. If the accused does not keep his promise, then he loses the money or property.

A bondsman is an individual in the business of bailing defendants out of jail for a non-refundable fee equal to 10% of the bail amount. He does this by informing the court that payment of the entire bail amount will be made by him if the defendant misses a court date. Most defendants who hire a bondsman are those who are unable to come up with the money themselves.

In the state of Kentucky, commercial bail bond companies are not allowed to operate. 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). A bondsman operating out of state is only allowed to apprehend a fugitive who has fled to Kentucky if he has a warrant. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
