    Sex Offender Search & Lookup:

    A sex offender is ordered by law to submit his information to local law enforcement for filing in the state sex offender database and the national sex offender registry. The definition of a sex offender is someone who has been convicted of a sexually motivated offense such as rape, prostitution, and child pornography. Residents of Erie County can locate sex offenders in their area by visiting the Sheriff’s Alert page. Just keep in mind that some of the records may only list last known addresses because some offenders fail to comply with the law.

    Bail and Bail Bond Agent:

    In Erie County, the judge will require the payment of money or bond in order to ensure the compliance of a pretrial inmate in fulfilling all of his court obligations after he is released from custody. This payment is called bail. Bail will be refunded to the defendant minus a 3% administrative fee after the trial if the defendant was able to fulfill all the conditions of his release. Failure to do so will result in the bail getting forfeited and a warrant getting issued for the defendant’s arrest. If bail cannot be paid, the defendant must stay in the jail until the case is over or he is released.
    In New York, the courts will only accept payments made in the exact amount as they do not provide change. For this reason, it will allow the use of various modes of payment in one transaction. These are the following:

  • US Cash
  • Cashier’s Check (the amount should not be more than the bail amount)
  • Credit Card (requires an 8% processing fee)
  • Debit Card
  • money order from a bank or Western Union (each order should be no more than $1000)
    A defendant can also get the services of a bond agent to help him post bail. He will need to pay a bond fee which is non-refundable. The New York State Insurance Department regulates the bond agents and has placed their fees in a tiered system. You can easily calculate the fee based on the system below:
    A bond of $200 or less has a fee of $10.
    A bond of $3000 or less has a fee that is 10% of the bail amount
    A bond of $3001 to $10000 has a fee that is 10% of the first $3000 and 8% of the remaining amount.
    A bond of more than $10000 has a fee that is 10% of the first $3000, 8% of the amount between $3000 and $10000, and 6% for the remaining amount.
    For example, to calculate for the fee of a $15000 bond, you will need to get (10% x $3000) + (8% x $7000) + (6% x $5000) = $1160.
