Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Individuals who have been convicted of a sex crime are classified as sex offenders. A sex crime is generally defined as a sexually oriented criminal offense such as sexual assault, rape, and child molestation. Sex offenders are mandated by law to register their information with the County Sheriff who is then responsible for ensuring that the information is entered into the state’s sex offender registry. The federal government has a separate system, the National Sex Offender Registry, which is a nationwide list of registered sex offenders. These registries can be accessed by anyone.

If you wish to locate sex offenders in your neighborhood in Kentucky, you can visit this . It is important to keep in mind that the information in the registry cannot be guaranteed as 100% accurate. Some sex offenders may not obey the law. This means that there may be addresses that are no longer current. You may also encounter incomplete addresses listing an offender’s block rather than his specific address.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the permission of the court that allows a defendant to stay out of jail while he/she waits for his/her trial. To post bail, the defendant (or his family/friends) must lodge money with the court that will serve as a guarantee that the defendant will appear before the court at his/her trial. Failure to do so will forfeit the money pledged.

If a defendant (or his family/friends) is unable to pay the bail amount, a bondsman can act as a surety for a fee. In exchange for 10% of the bail amount, the bondsman will guarantee before the court that he will be responsible for paying the entire bail amount should the defendant miss any of his/her court appearances. This fee is non-refundable.

Commercial bail bonding is prohibited in Kentucky. Ky. Stat. § 431.510 (outlawing commercial bail bond industry); see Stephens v. Bonding Assoc. of Kentucky, 538 S.W.2d 580 (Ky 1976) (upholding statute). To arrest a fugitive who has fled from Kentucky, an out-of-state bondsman must get a warrant. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
