Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Sex offenders are required by law to have their information entered in the state sex offender registry and the national sex offender database. These systems are utilized to monitor the movement of these offenders and help increase public awareness and safety. The definition of a sex offender is an individual who has a conviction for an offense involving sexual misconduct such as sexual assault, prostitution, and rape. Residents of Otsego County can visit the Sheriff’s Alert page if they want to locate sex offenders residing or working in their neighborhood. The information in the registry cannot be guaranteed as 100% accurate as some offenders do not submit their information. As such, you may encounter records that show last known addresses instead of current ones.

Bail and Bail Bond Agents:

The court requires the payment of money or a bond called bail before it will allow a pretrial inmate to stay out of jail. It will use this payment as a form of collateral to ensure that the defendant will appear at all of his court obligations. A refund of the bail, minus a 3% administrative fee, will be given after the case is over if the defendant is able to attend all of his court dates. If he fails to show up at even just one court date, the court will revoke bail and issue a warrant for the defendant’s arrest. The defendant will also not be able to get the payment back. If he cannot post bail for any reason, then the defendant must stay in custody until he is released or the case has been dismissed.
When paying bail, the courts in New York will require the exact amount because will not provide any change. If necessary, it will allow individuals to use different forms of money in one transaction in order to pay the exact amount. The following forms of payment will be accepted for bail:

  • US cash
  • Cashier’s Check (cannot exceed bail amount)
  • Bank or Western Union money order (each order should not be greater than $1,000)
  • Credit card (plus 8% processing fee)
  • Debit card
    If a defendant cannot post bail on his own, a bond agent can secure his release in exchange for a non-refundable fee. Bond fees, just like bond agents, are regulated by the New York State Insurance Department. Because the bond fees are in a tiered system, it is easy to calculate a defendant’s bond fee based on the bail amount:

  • a bond of $200 or less has a fee of $10.
  • a bond of $3000 or less has a fee equal to 10% of the bond.
  • a bond of $3,001 to $10,000 has a fee equal to 10% of the bond for the first $3000 and 8% for the remaining amount.
  • a bond that is more than $10,000 has a fee equal to 10% of the bond for the first $3000, 8% for the amount between $3,000 and $10,000, and 6% for the remaining amount.
    For example, a $15,000 bond has a fee equal to $1,160. To get this amount, we used the following formula: ($3,000 x 10%) + ($7,000 x 8%) + ($5,000 x 6%).
