Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

According to Oregon Revised Statutes, all sex offenders designated as “predatory” will be listed on the Sex Offender Community Notification web page. A person who has been found guilty of one of the following sex crimes to any degree is considered predatory – sexual abuse, sodomy, rape, and unlawful penetration. If you wish to locate predatory sex offenders in Benton County, you can check the Sheriff’s Office Level III Sex Offender Community Notification page. Take note that the majority of sex offenders are not listed here. If you wish to locate other sex offenders in the county, you can search the Oregon Sex Offender Registry.

Bail and Bondsman

In Oregon, an accused individual can be let out on bail in several ways. The type of bail that is set by the judge will depend on the crime involved, the criminal history of the defendant, and his connections in the community. He can be let out on personal recognizance or, if this is not sufficient in the judge’s eyes, conditional release.

If bail requires payment of a certain amount, the accused is allowed to post 10% of the bail in exchange for his release. This “deposit” is called security and is used as collateral to secure the person’s appearance in court when the trial starts.

Because the bail amount is dependent on several factors, it may vary. A defendant with a drug possession charge may be given a bail of $10,000 while another person arrested for a sex offense may have his bail set at $75,000.

Oregon is one of the four states in the country that have banned commercial bail bonding and bounty hunting. In fact, the Oregon Justice Department acts as its own bail bond agency by allowing accused individuals to only pay 10% of the bail amount.
