Sex Offender Search & Lookup

According to federal law, sex offenders must submit their information to local law enforcement in order for it to be filed in the state sex offender registry and the national sex offender database. These systems are utilized to help increase safety and awareness. An individual who has been convicted of a sex-related offense such as rape, sexual assault, and incese is classified as a sex offender. In Albany County, anyone can visit the Sheriff Alert page. The Sheriff’s Office cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information in the database as some offenders do not update their information. You may find some records that only list last known addresses.

Bail and Bail Bondsman

The money paid to the court to ensure the appearance of a defendant at all of his court dates is called bail. This is “posted” by the defendant and/or his family/friends in order to secure his temporary release from jail. If the defendant is able to fulfill all of his obligations by the end of the trial, the money will be returned minus a 3% administrative fee. If he fails to appear in court once, the court will keep the money and issue a warrant for the defendant’s arrest. If the defendant is unable to post bail for any reason, he will remain in custody until the case is dismissed or he is released.
In the state of New York, courts require that payments for bail should be given in the exact amount. This is because the courts will not give change for bail payments. However, individuals are allowed to use different modes of payment in one transaction to meet the bail amount set by the court, if necessary. The acceptable modes of payment are as follows:

  • US Cash
  • Cashier’s Check (should be no more than the bail amount)
  • Money order from the bank or Western Union (each order should not be greater than $1000)
  • Credit Card (an 8% processing fee will be charged)
  • Debit Card
    If the defendant wishes to procure the services of a bonds agent, he should know that these individuals are regulated by the New York State Insurance Department. This means that their fees have been set by the government into a tiered system which is followed by all bond agents. The calculation used for bond fees is as follows:
    For a $200-bond or less, the fee is $10.
    For a $3000-bond or less, the fee is 10% of the bail amount.
    For a $3001 to $10000 bond, the fee is 10% of the first $3000 and 8% for the rest of the amount.
    For a bond greater than $10000, the fee is 10% of the first $3000, 8% for the amount within $3001 and $10000, and 6% for the amount that fell above $10000.
    Here’s an example: For a $15000 bond, the fee would be the total of $3000 x 10% plus $7000 x 8% plus $5000 x 6% which is $1160.
    Defendants should keep in mind that bond fees are not refundable.
