Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Sex offenders are mandated by federal law to let local law enforcement know of any changes in their information so that their records in the state and national sex offender registry can be updated. These databases are made available to the public to help increase safety and awareness. Sex offenders are people who have been convicted of a sex crime such as rape, sexual assault, and child molestation. Anyone can visit https://www.tn.gov/tbi/section/tennessee-sex-offender-registry to check for sex offenders residing in Sevier County. It is important to take into account the fact that some offenders may not always update their information when viewing the entries in the registry. Your search results may reveal previous residential addresses or even contain incomplete addresses.  

Bail and Bondsman

A person arrested in Sevier County can be granted temporary freedom from custody while awaiting trial if he or she is able to post bail. Bail is when the court requires money or property to be placed in their care for the duration of the time before and during the trial. This is to guarantee that the defendant shows up at his trial. If he/she misses a court appearance, the bail is forfeited.

A defendant who is unable to post bail due to a lack of money is allowed to use a bondsman to post bail on his behalf. The bondsman will be held liable by the court for payment of the entire bail amount. In return for this service, the defendant must pay the bondsman 10% of the bail. This cannot be refunded no matter what the outcome of the trial is.
