Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Federal law states that all sex offenders must notify local law enforcement upon their release and have their information registered in the national and state sex offender registries. The definition of a sex offender is a person who has been convicted of a sexually oriented offense such as rape, child pornography, and sex trafficking. If you want to locate sex offenders residing in Benton County, you can visit the state’s sex offender system here.

The state of Tennessee cannot guarantee that all information in the system is accurate or complete. You may find some residential addresses that are no longer current. Some entries may only list the block where an offender’s house is located.

Bail and Bondsman

When charged with a criminal offense, a person can be granted temporary release from custody or jail by the court. This is called bail. Depending on the type of bail, the court will require a form of guarantee from the defendant that will assure them of the defendant’s return once the trial starts. For most types of bail, money or property will need to be lodged with the court to secure a defendant’s release. If he misses a court appearance, the money or property is forfeited.

A bondsman is hired when the defendant is unable to come up with enough money to post bail. Once hired, the bondsman will own responsibility for paying the entire bail amount if the defendant does not appear before the court as promised. The fee of a bondsman is non-refundable and is usually equal to 10% of the bond amount.
