Sex Offender Search & Lookup:

Federal law mandates that sex offenders must provide their information to local law enforcement for entry in the state sex offender registry and the national sex offender database. A sex offender is defined as a person who has been convicted of a sexually motivated offense such as rape, prostitution, and sex trafficking. In Genesee County, anyone can locate sex offenders in the area by searching the New York State Sex Offender Registry. Keep in mind that not all offenders comply with the registration law. Some records may only have last known addresses listed.

Bail and Bail Bond Agents:

The money or bond that is paid to the court in exchange for a defendant’s temporary release while awaiting trial is called bail. This payment is required by the court in order to guarantee the defendant’s appearance at all of his court dates. The bail will be refunded after the trial minus a 3% administrative fee. However, if the defendant fails to show up as promised, the court will revoke the bail, forfeit the payment, and issue a warrant for his arrest. If bail cannot be posted, then the defendant must stay inside the jail while the trial is ongoing until the case is dismissed or he is released.
Paying bail can be done using different forms of money in one transaction. This is because the New York courts will only accept the exact amount and not provide change. The following are the modes of payment that are accepted:

  • US Cash
  • Cashier’s Check (the amount should not be larger than the bail amount)
  • money order from a bank or Western Union (each order must not be more than $1000, multiple orders allowed)
  • Debit Card
  • Credit Card (plus an 8% processing fee)
    A defendant who cannot post bail on his own can pay a bond agent to secure his release. The bond fee is non-refundable but easily calculated. The New York State Insurance Department regulates bond agents and their fees are set in a tiered system.
    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 $3001 to $10000-bond has a fee equal to 10% of the first $3000 and 8% of the remaining bail.
    A bond higher than $10000 has a fee equal to 10% of the first $3000, 8% of the amount between $3000 and $10000, and 6% of the remaining amount.
    Here’s an example:
    To calculate the fee for a $15000 bond, you need to calculate (10% x $3000) + (8% x $7000) + (6% x $5000). The fee then is $1160.
