Sex Offender Search & Lookup:

Sex offenders are required by law to register their information in the state sex offender database and the national sex offender database. A person with a conviction for a crime involving sexual misconduct such as rape, sex trafficking, and incest is classified as a sex offender. To locate sex offenders in Rensselaer County, you can go to the Sheriff’s Alert page. The Sheriff’s Office cannot guarantee that all the information in the registry is 100% accurate because some offenders may not submit their information. There may be records that only list last known addresses.

Bail and Bail Bond Agents:

Bail is the money or bond that is put down by a defendant or his family/friends as collateral to the court. This is done in order for the defendant to get released from jail while awaiting trial. The money will be used as a guarantee that the defendant will return once the trial begins and fulfill all of his court obligations. A refund of the bail will be done once the trial is over, minus a 3% administrative fee. However, if the defendant misses a court appearance, bail will be forfeited and the court will issue a warrant for his arrest. If bail is not paid, then the defendant must stay inside the jail until the case is dismissed or he is released.
In New York, courts will only accept the exact amount when paying for bail because they will not give you any change. However, they do allow individuals to use various forms of money in one transaction. The acceptable forms of payment are:

  • 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 (includes an 8% processing fee)
    A defendant who cannot afford to post bail can pay a bond agent to do so on his behalf. The bond fee, unlike bail, is not refundable. The New York State Insurance Department monitors bond agents and have made a tiered system for the calculation of bond fees. To get the amount of your bond fee, just use the system below:
    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 get the fee for a $15000 bond, you will need to calculate (10% x $3000) + (8% x $7000) + (6% x $5000). Based on this calculation, your bond fee is $1160.
