Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Sex offenders are individuals who have been found guilty of committing or attempting to commit a sexually oriented offense such as sexual assault, rape, and child molestation. According to the law, all sex offenders must register their information with the Sheriff’s Office that has jurisdiction over where their residence is located. This information will be entered by the Sheriff’s Office into the state’s sexual offender registry. The federal government will also gather this information and post it on their national registry for public use.

Please keep in mind that the information published on this database cannot be guaranteed as 100% accurate. Some sex offenders may fail to comply with the law which means that certain addresses may no longer be current. Some addresses may even be incomplete, revealing only the block where the house is located.

Bail and Bondsman

An individual charged with an offense may be temporarily released from jail by the court if bail is set and paid. Bail is the pledge of money or form of property that is used to ensure that the accused will show up at his or her scheduled court appearances. If he or she misses just one appearance, the bail amount paid to the court will be forfeit.

A bondsman is a person who will act as a surety, pledging the money or property set by the court as bail. In return for his services, the accused must pay him a non-refundable fee which is usually 10% of the value of the bail. If the accused fails to appear for his trial, the bondsman will be the one held liable by the court to pay the remaining bail amount.
