Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

According to federal law, sex offenders must have their information filed with local law enforcement for entry into the state and national sex offender registries. A sex offender is a person who has a conviction for a sexually oriented crime such as rape, sexual assault, and prostitution. Anyone can locate sex offenders in Union County by visiting.

You are required to read and acknowledge the disclaimer provided. Take note that not all offenders will register their information. As a result, you may find some entries that list last known addresses of offenders or even incomplete ones such as just the block where an offender resides.

Bail and Bondsman

The court will ask for a deposit of money before it will allow a defendant awaiting trial to be released from jail or custody. This is called bail. The purpose of this is to increase the probability of the defendant appearing before the court once the trial starts. If he/she misses a court date, the money is forfeited.

If a defendant cannot post bail due to financial problems, he or she can hire a bondsman. This usually costs 10% of the bail amount and cannot be refunded. Once hired, a bondsman can post the bond on the defendant’s behalf, securing his release. If the defendant violates the conditions of his bail, it will be the bondsman who will be held liable for paying the entire bond.
