Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Federal law mandates that all sex offenders need to report any changes in their information to local law enforcement. Their records are then updated in the state and national sex offender registries in the interest of public safety. An individual is categorized as a sex offender if he is convicted of a sexually motivated offense such as rape, child molestation, and prostitution. The state of Tennessee monitors all sex offenders residing in the area here. Anyone can access the database. However, it is important to keep in mind that not all the information can be guaranteed as accurate since some offenders may not comply with the law. You may get search results revealing previously known addresses or just the block where an offender’s house is situated.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail allows you to secure your release from jail while you wait for your day in court. You need to lodge money or property with the court in exchange for your freedom to assure the court that you will still turn up at your trial after you are released. If you miss an appearance in court, your money or property is forfeited. A bondsman can post bail on behalf of a defendant if he does not have enough funds to cover the amount required by the court. The bondsman will charge a 10% fee based on the bond amount and this is not refundable.
