Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Individuals who are found guilty of a sex crime are called sex offenders. As such, they are required by law to register within the state they reside in as a convicted sex offender. Their data is then placed in the state sex offender registry which is accessible to the public. The US Department of Justice uses the information collected by the state to publish a nationwide list of sex offenders. This database is also open to the public.

While a sex crime is defined by the statutes governing a state, there is a generally accepted definition: a sex crime is an illegal act that involves the use of force, threats, or coercion to commit a sexually motivated act against another individual.

You can check the Lawrence County sex offender registry

Please bear in mind that the disclaimer you accepted prior to using the information within the database clearly states that the government cannot guarantee the data’s accuracy or completeness. At times, you may get results that reveal an offender’s neighborhood but not his exact address. There may also be times when the database will only have an offender’s last known address.

Bail and Bondsman

The court can grant bail to an individual who has been charged with an offense in exchange for his temporary release. The bail is used as collateral, pledged to the court so as to ensure the defendant’s appearance during his trial. Failure to meet the conditions of the bail will forfeit the bond posted by the defendant.

If you cannot post bail for yourself, you can hire a bondsman to do it for you. The bondsman will act as a surety, guaranteeing to the court that he will pay the bond should you fail to show up during your scheduled court appearances. The fee charged by a bondsman is non-refundable and normally set at 10% of the bail amount.
