Sex Offender Search & Lookup:

A sex offender is someone who has been found guilty of a sex offense such as rape, prostitution, and incest. Federal law stipulates that sex offenders register their information in the state sex offender registry and the national sex offender registry. To locate sex offenders in Dutchess County, you can visit the Sheriff’s Alert page. The records do not always have current information. Some records may only show last known addresses due to the failure of some offenders in complying with the law.

Bail and Bail Bond Agent:

Bail is the amount of money that must be paid to the court in order for a pretrial inmate to be granted temporary release from jail. The money will be used to ensure that the defendant shows up at all of his scheduled court appearances. It will be refunded minus a 3% administrative fee once the trial is done if the defendant was able to comply with all of his court obligations. Failure to appear in court will mean the bail will be forfeited and a warrant will be issued. If bail cannot be posted, the defendant will stay in jail until the trial is over, he is released, or the case is dismissed.
Bail can be paid using various kinds of money in one transaction. The courts in New York will only accept payments made in the exact amount. Change will not be provided. The acceptable modes of payment are as follows:

  • US Cash
  • Money Order from banks or Western Union (each order must not be more than $1000)
  • Credit Card (with an 8% processing fee)
  • Debit Card
  • Cashier’s Check (the amount should not be more than the bail amount

    If bail cannot be posted alone, a defendant can pay a bond agent to help him out. The New York State Insurance Department regulates the bond agents and their fees. To calculate your bond fee, you can use the tiered system below:
    A bond of $200 or less will cost a fee of $10.
    A bond of $3000 or less will cost a fee equal to 10% of the bail amount.
    A bond of $3001 to $10000 will cost a fee equal to 10% of the first $3000 and 8% for the rest of the amount.
    A bond of more than $10000 will cost a fee equal to 10% of the first $3000, 8% of the amount between $3000 to $10000, and 6% of the remaining amount.
    Here’s an example:
    To calculate for the bond fee of a $15000-bond, you must use this formula: (10% x $3000) + (8% x $7000) + (6% x $5000) = $1160.
