Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

All sex offenders need to register their information with the state and national sex offender databases upon their release from prison. A sex offender is defined as a person whose conviction was for a sexually motivated crime such as rape, sexual assault, and sex trafficking. You can visit Tennessee’s sex offender registry to check for offenders living in Knox County. When using the system, please keep in mind that not all of the information can be guaranteed as 100% accurate. Some offenders may fail to comply with the law. Thus, you may encounter records that only contain an offender’s last known address.

Bail and Bondsman

In Knox County, you can get released from custody or jail after your arrest as long as you post bail. Bail is when you lodge money or property with the court as part of your guarantee to show up at all your scheduled court appearances. The money/property is lost once you miss a court date. A bondsman can act as a surety if you do not have enough money to post bail on your own. In exchange for his guarantee of paying the entire bond if you skip bail, you will need to pay him a non-refundable fee that amounts to 10% of the bond.
