Sex Offender Search & Lookup:

According to federal law, a sex offender must provide his information to local law enforcement to be filed in the sex offender database of the state as well as the national sex offender registry. Residents in Chemung County can search for sex offenders in the area by checking the New York State Registry. Keep in mind that some records will only have last known addresses listed because not all offenders will register their information

Bail and Bail Bond Agent

Bail is the payment required by the court in order to guarantee a defendant’s return to court for his trial. The payment, in the form of money or bond, must be made before a pretrial inmate can be released from jail. Bail is returned when the defendant is able to appear at all of his scheduled court appearances minus a 3% administrative fee. It is forfeited if the defendant fails to appear. A warrant is also issued for the defendant’s arrest. If the bail is not paid, the defendant stays in jail while awaiting trial until he is released, or the case is dismissed.
Bail can be paid using various types of money in one transaction. This is because the New York courts require an exact amount in payment. Change will not be provided. The acceptable forms of payment are as follows:

  • US Cash
  • Cashier’s checks (amount should not be more than the bail)
  • Credit card (must pay an 8% processing fee)
  • Debit Card
  • Money order (from Western Union or bank, each order should not be more than $1000)

    Bond agents operate in New York, providing their services to defendants who are unable to post bail. A bond fee is paid in exchange for such services. Because the New York State Insurance Department regulates these agents and their fees, the calculation of these fees are in a tiered system.
    For a bond of $200 or less, the fee is $10.
    For a bond of $3000 or less, the fee is 10% of the bail amount.
    For a bond that is $3001 to $10000, the fee is 10% of the first $3000 and 8% for the rest of the amount.
    For a bond that is higher than $10000, the fee is 10% of the first $3000, 8% for the amount between $3000 and $10000, and 6% for the rest.
    Here’s an example:
    a $15000 bond has a bond fee of $1160. The calculation is (10% x $3000) + (8% x $7000) + (6% x $5000).
