Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Federal law mandates that sex offenders must submit their information to local law enforcement for registration in the state sex offender database 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 sexual assault, sex trafficking, and child pornography. To find sex offenders in Ontario County, residents can visit the Sheriff’s Alert page. Bear in mind that the information in the database cannot be guaranteed as 100% accurate. Some offenders do not update their information so you may find that some records only list the last known address of an offender.

Bail and Bail Bond Agents:

The court requires collateral in the form of money or a bond (known as bail) before it will allow a defendant to stay out of jail while awaiting trial. Bail will be used to ensure the defendant’s compliance in fulfilling all of his court obligations. It will be refunded to the defendant once the trial is done minus a 3% administrative fee. However, if he skips one of his court dates, he forfeits the bail and the court will issue a warrant for his arrest. If bail cannot be posted, the defendant stays in jail until the case is dismissed or he is released.
Individuals can pay the bail using different forms of money in one transaction. The courts in New York do not provide change so you need to give the exact amount. The acceptable forms of payment are:

  • US cash
  • Cashier’s Check with an amount that is not bigger than the bail amount
  • Money orders from a bank or Western Union that are not larger than $1000 (each)
  • Credit card (you need to pay an 8% processing fee)
  • Debit card
    In New York, bond agents and their fees are regulated by the New York State Insurance Department. Bond agents can be hired to help secure the release of a defendant who cannot afford bail on his own. To compute the fee that will be charged, you can use the tiered system below:
    For a $200 bond or less, the fee is $10.
    For a $3000 bond or less, the fee is 10% of the bail.
    For a bond of $3001 to $10000, the fee is 10% of the first $3000 and 8% for the remaining 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 remaining amount.
    For example, to get the bond fee for a $15000-bond, you will need to get 10% of $3000, 8% of $7000, and 6% of $5000. Using that formula, the bond fee then is $1160.
