Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

All sex offenders must be registered in the state sex offender database and the national sex offender database. A sex offender is a person with a conviction for a crime of a sexual nature such as child pornography, rape, and molestation. You can access information on sex offenders residing in Cocke County by visiting the Tennessee Sex Offender Registry. Just bear in mind that some records may reveal last known addresses, not current ones. In addition, make sure that you read the disclosure provided before using the registry.

Bail and Bondsman

To stay out of jail while awaiting trial, a defendant is required to pledge money or property to the court. This is known as bail. It is utilized by the court to secure the defendant’s appearance at his trial. The court refunds the bail after the trial if the defendant keeps his word (minus court fees). If the defendant does not show up in court, he forfeits the bail.

If the bail is too expensive for a defendant, he can hire a bail bondsman to act as a surety on his behalf. This means that the bondsman will sign a bond with the court and become responsible for paying the entire amount should the defendant skip bail. The cost of hiring a bondsman is usually 10% of the bail and is non-refundable.
