Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

A person is considered a sex offender if he has a conviction for a crime of a sexual nature. Sex crimes may include rape, incest, and prostitution. According to federal law, this type of offender must submit his information to local law enforcement for recording in the state sex offender registry and the national sex offender registry. If you wish to locate sex offenders in Caldwell Parish, you can visit the Sheriff’s Alert page. You will need to read the disclaimer first. Also, keep in mind that some records in the system do not have current information listed because not all offenders register.

Bail and Bondsman

A pretrial inmate is able to get out of jail through bail. This is the money required by the court as collateral to ensure that the defendant will fulfill all of his court obligations while out on bail. He is refunded the money back after the trial, minus any court fees. If he violates the conditions of his release, he forfeits the bail.

A bail bondsman can act as a surety in exchange for a fee. He can be hired by a defendant who cannot afford bail. He typically charges 10% of the bail for his services. However, this fee cannot be refunded.
