Sex offenders are individuals who have been found guilty of a sexually oriented crime such as child pornography, sexual assault, and rape. These individuals are required by the law to provide their information to the Sheriff’s Office of the county they are currently residing in. The data is then entered into the state’s sex offender registry that is made available to the public. The same data is also entered into the National Sex Offender Registry, a separate system maintained by the US Department of Justice that is also accessible to the public.

The disclaimer provided must be read and acknowledged before you proceed to use the registry. Please bear in mind that any information within cannot be guaranteed as completely accurate. Some sex offenders may fail to comply with the law. As a result, you may get information that is no longer current (i.e. last known address) or incomplete (i.e. neighborhood where the offender resides but not his house number and street).

Bail and Bondsman

When a person is charged with an offense, he or she may be granted temporary release from custody provided he or she posts bail. Bail is the amount of money or form of property that will be used by the court to ensure that the accused shows up at his or her scheduled court appearances. If he or she misses just one, the money or property will be forfeited.

A bondsman is an individual who acts as a surety to the court for individuals who are unable to post bail for himself. In return for a non-refundable fee, the bondsman will post bail for the accused and be held liable by the court if the individual violates the conditions of his temporary release. The fee is usually 10% of the bail amount.
