Sex Offender Search & Lookup:

A sex offender is someone who has been convicted of a sex crime such as child pornography, rape, and prostitution. A sex offender is mandated by federal law to have his information entered in the state sex offender registry as well as the national sex offender registry. To locate sex offenders in Columbia County, you can visit the New York State Sex Offender Registry. Just make sure to keep in mind that not all offenders comply with the law. Some records may only have last known addresses listed.

Bail and Bail Bond Agents:

The money or bond paid to the court in exchange for the temporary release of a pretrial inmate is called bail. This is used by the court to secure the defendant’s appearance at all of his court dates. The court will return the bail minus a 3% administrative fee once the trial is over and the defendant has met all of his court obligations. The bail will be revoked and forfeited if the defendant skips a court appearance. If bail has not been posted, the defendant will have to stay in jail until he is released, the trial is over, or the case has been dismissed.
Payment for bail can be done using different forms of money in one transaction. This is because the courts of New York do not provide change and require the exact amount in payment. The list of acceptable forms of money are as follows:

  • US Cash
  • Cashier’s Check (the amount should not be higher than the bail amount)
  • Money order (can be from a bank or Western Union; each order must not be more than $1000)
  • Credit Card (8% processing fee)
  • Debit Card

    If a defendant cannot post bail, he can acquire the services of a bond agent. A bond agent can post bail on his behalf for a fee. Keep in mind that bond fees are non-refundable. The New York State Insurance Department regulates bond agents and their fees which is placed in a tiered system. Calculating your bond fee is based on the system below:
    A $200 bond or less has a fee of $10.
    A $3000 bond or less has a fee equal to 10% of the bail amount
    A bond of $3001-$10000 has a fee equal to 10% of $3000 and 8% of the remaining amount.
    A bond of more than $10000 has a fee 10% of $3000, 8% of the amount between $3000-$10000, and 6% of the remaining amount.
    To give you an example, let’s calculate the bond fee for a $15000 bond.
    (10% x $3000) + (8% x $7000) + (6% x $5000) = $1160
