According to federal law, a sex offender needs to give his information to local law enforcement for entry into the state and national sex offender registries. These databases are utilized to increase public awareness and safety. A person is classified as a sex offender if he has been found guilty of a sexually oriented offense such as rape, child pornography, and sex trafficking.

Keep in mind that the information in the database cannot be guaranteed as 100% accurate as some offenders do not update their registration. As such, you may find some records will only contain last known addresses.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the money pledged to the court in exchange for the temporary release of a person from jail while he is awaiting trial. The money will be used to ensure that the defendant shows up once the trial starts. If he misses a court appearance, he loses the money.

If a defendant cannot post bail due to a lack of funds, he can still get released with the help of a bondsman who will act as a surety. To hire a bondsman, the defendant will need to pay him 10% of the bail amount. Unlike the bail you pay to the court, a bondsman’s fee cannot be refunded.
