The definition of a sex offender is a person convicted of a crime involving sex, including rape, molestation, and production or distribution of child pornography.

You can access this information online for Marion County by going to this link, but bear in mind that searches sometimes reveal primary last known addresses or, rather the block that they live on. You are also required to accept a disclosure to use the database.

Bail and Bail Bondsman

The bail and bond process is used to secure your release from jail in exchange for meeting certain conditions. It is imposed to ensure that you will make your court dates and not commit any further offenses while out. An Iowa criminal lawyer will bring up the issue of bail at your initial appearance before a judge. The judge makes a determination as to the conditions for your release until your next court date.

Just as Iowa provides sentencing guidelines, it offers guidelines for bail bonds. The bond schedule for crimes other than forcible felonies and misdemeanors is as follows:

Manufacturing or delivery of certain controlled substances – $25,000
Felony for manufacturing or delivery of certain controlled substances – $50,000
Class B felony – $25,000
Class C felony – $10,000
Class D felony – $5,000
Aggravated misdemeanor – $2,000
Serious misdemeanor – $1,000
Simple misdemeanor – $300

The professionalism of this company is pathetic. After having an issue with this company over the weekend, I called the discuss the matter with the manager or owner Allen Smith. When telling him what happened he stated they had to make money somehow and was yelling cussing and making threats to me. I would highly not recommend this. Company to anyone. If this how he treats all his customers.

Worst communication ever! I understand helping people out but seriously! Don't try to screw people over with more money when there is no reason at all. Worst place to go! Commercial bonds are the worst!
