A sex offender is a person who has performed an illegal sexual behavior against the will of another person, such as rape, child molestation, indecent exposure, sexual abuse or sexual assault. All sex offenders and violent offenders must register in the registries maintained on federal and state level. If you want to know who is registered in Liberty County, please access the Montana Sexual and Violent Offender Registry which contains records for compliant and noncompliant perpetrators.

Bail and Bondsman

When you are arrested, you must stay in jail unless you post the bail as set in the court order. This is an opportunity provided only to specific offenders. If you have the option to place bail bond in cash or in surety, and do not own the money, you can contact a commercial bonding company, which will lend you the necessary money for the bail bond. The bondsman will place the bail bond at court and complete the procedure so that you are able to defend from freedom. Most bondsmen typically charge 10 to 20 percent service fee.
