Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

The law stipulates that all sex offenders must have their information entered in the state sex offender registry and the national sex offender registry. A person is considered a sex offender if he has been found guilty of a crime involving sexual misconduct such as rape, prostitution, and incest. To get information on the sex offenders residing in Seneca County, you can visit the Sheriff’s Alert page. Keep in mind that not all offenders provide their information to the Sheriff’s Office. As such, some of the records in the database may only contain last known addresses.

Bail and Bail Bond Agents

The temporary release of a defendant awaiting trial is only allowed if bail has been posted. Bail is the payment required by the court which will be used to ensure the defendant’s compliance with all of his court obligations. A refund will be granted minus a 3% administrative fee at the end of the trial. Bail will be forfeited if the defendant fails to appear at one of his scheduled court appearances. If bail has not been posted, the defendant will have to stay in jail until the case is dismissed or he is released.
When paying bail, an individual must give exact payment must be given. This is because the courts of New York will not be providing you with any change. However, they do allow more than one form of money to be used in one transaction. The following are the types of payments accepted by the courts:

  • US Cash
  • Cashier’s Check (cannot be more than the bail)
  • Money orders from Western Union or a bank; each order must not be higher than $1000
  • Credit Card; will require payment of an 8% processing fee
  • Debit Card
    In New York, a defendant can pay a bond agent to post his bail. This fee is non-refundable. The New York State Insurance Department regulates bond agents and their fees which are placed in a tiered system. To learn how to calculate your bond fee, use the tiered system below.
    A bond of $200 or less will have a fee of $10.
    A bond of $3000 or less will have a fee that is 10% of the bail amount.
    A bond of $3001 to $10000 will have a fee that is 10% for the first $3000 and 8% for the rest of the bail amount.
    A bond greater than $10000 will have a fee that is 10% for the first $3000, 8% for the amount between $3000 and $10000, and 6% for the rest of the bail amount.
    For example:
    For a $15000 bond, you will need to calculate (10% x $3000) + (8% x $7000) + (6% x $5000). Following this calculation, the fee that a bond agent will charge is $1160.
