Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

An individual is considered a sex offender if the crime he has been found guilty of is a sex offense. A sex offense is defined as a crime of a sexual nature such as rape, incest, and prostitution. In accordance to state law, all sex offenders must submit their information to the Oregon State Police to be registered in the state sex offender database. However, not all sex offenders are listed on the public website. Based on several Oregon Revised Statutes, only certain offenders that fall under the designation of level 3, predatory, and sexually violent dangerous offenders will be posted in the inquiry system. If you wish to locate these sex offenders in your neighborhood, you can search the Oregon Sex Offender Inquiry System. Make sure to read the Conditions of Use statement. Also, not all information in the system will be accurate at the time of your reading. Some records may only show last known addresses.

Bail and Bondsman

If a person is accused of a crime in Oregon, he is able to secure his release from jail while awaiting trial through bail. Bail can be one of three things: released on personal recognizance, conditional release, or a bail amount. A judge will determine what kind of bail will be given and how much based on the severity of the crime, the accused individual’s criminal history, and his history of violence.

Bail amounts can vary. A person with a charge of drug possession may be given a $10,000 bail while someone who is charged with a sex crime is given a $75,000 bail.

Oregon is one of 4 states in the US that have made commercial bail bonding and bounty hunting illegal. Its state justice department acts as a bail bond agency, allowing certain defendants to pay only a portion of the bail in exchange for their release.

Because of this, a defendant is able to get released from jail just by pledging 10% of the bail to the court as collateral. This is known as security. Security, just like bail, is used by the court to guarantee the defendant’s appearance in court whenever he is requested to show up. If the defendant fails to show up as promised, it will be the justice department who will be responsible for apprehending him.
