Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

According to federal law, a sex offender must be registered in the state sex offender database as well as the national sex offender database in the interest of public safety. The law classifies a sex offender as someone who has a conviction for a sexually motivated crime such as prostitution, child pornography, and rape. Anyone who wishes to locate sex offenders in Smith County can use the Tennessee Sex Offender Registry. Make sure that you have read the disclaimer provided before you access the registry. Some of the records revealed in your search may only show last known addresses.

Bail and Bondsman

The court requires a “deposit” of money as collateral before it will grant a pretrial inmate temporary release from custody. This is known as bail. It will be used to secure the defendant’s compliance in fulfilling all of his court obligations. If he keeps his word, he will get the money back after the trial minus any court fees. If he doesn’t, he forfeits the money and will be considered a fugitive.

A bail bondsman can act as a surety for a defendant who cannot afford bail on his own. The cost of his service is usually 10% of the bail amount. Unlike bail, the bond fee cannot be refunded.
