Sex Offender Search & Lookup

Federal law stipulates that all sex offenders need to file their information in the national sex offender database and the state sex offender registry. An individual who has a conviction for a sex offense such as rape, prostitution, and sex trafficking is considered a sex offender. Locating sex offenders in Tompkins County can be done by visiting the New York State Sex Offender Registry. Keep in mind that the accuracy of the information listed in the database cannot be guaranteed as 100% accurate. Not all sex offenders comply with the registration law. You may view some records that only have the last known addresses of offenders.

Bail and Bail Bond Agents

The court requires a collateral to be put down before it will allow a pretrial inmate out of jail. This collateral is called bail. The payment of money or bond will ensure that the defendant returns to court once the trial starts. After the trial, or if the case is dismissed, the defendant will be refunded his money back minus a 3% administrative fee. If he fails to return, the money will be forfeited and a warrant will be issued for the arrest of the defendant. If the defendant cannot post bail, he must stay in jail until the case is dismissed or he is released.

Paying bail must be done in the exact amount because the courts in New York do not provide change. However, individuals are allowed to use more than one form of payment in one transaction to pay the bail. The acceptable forms of payment are:

  • US Cash
  • Cashier’s Check (amount should not be higher than the bail)
  • Bank money order or Western Union money order (multiple orders, each one should not be greater than $1000)
  • Debit card
  • Credit card (plus an 8% processing fee)

    If a defendant cannot afford the bail, a bond agent can do so on his behalf in exchange for a non-refundable fee. Bond agents are regulated by the New York State Insurance Department; their fees have been placed in a tiered system. To get the fee, you can use the system below:

    A $200 bond or less costs a fee of $10
    A $3000 bond or less costs a fee equal to 10% of the bond
    If the bond amount is $3001 to $10000, the fee is equal to 10% for the $3000 of the amount and the rest has a 8% fee.
    If the bond is more than $10,000, the fee is calculated by getting 10% of the first $3000 + 8% of the amount between $3000 and $10000 + 6% of the remaining balance.

    Here’s an example:
    To calculate the fee of a bond set at $15,000, follow this equation: $3,000*10% + $7,000*8% + $5,000*6%.
