Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

A person is considered a sex offender if he has been found guilty of a crime involving sexual conduct such as child pornography, incest, and rape. According to state law, all sex offenders must report to the state police upon moving into the state and regarding any changes in their information. Their information is then entered into the Oregon Sex Offender Registration (SOR) database. However, not all sex offenders are listed on the public website. Only those designated as a level 3 offender, a predatory offender, or a sexually violent dangerous offender. If you wish to locate all the sex offenders in Harney County, you can obtain the list from the Oregon State Police. If you only wish to search for high risk offenders, you can use the Oregon Sex Offender Inquiry System. You will be required to read the Conditions of Use Statement provided. Also, some entries in the database may only reveal last known addresses.

Bail and Bondsman

A person charged with a crime in Oregon can post 10% of the bail, called security, as part of his promise to show up in court whenever directed.

Bail is set by a judge if he is opposed to granting temporary release to a defendant through personal recognizance or conditional release. Bail amounts will vary because it will be dependent on the crime committed, the criminal record of the defendant, and his history of violence. A sex crime might entail a $75,000 bail while drug possession may only incur a $10,000 bail.

Oregon is unlike most other US states. It is one of just four states that have made commercial bail bonding illegal. This means that the justice department is the acting bail bond agency in the state. It allows defendants to post a portion of the bail and will be responsible for apprehending fugitives who have skipped bail.
