Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Sex offenders are required by the law to notify local authorities of any changes or updates in their information. Sex offenders are persons who have been found guilty of committing a crime involving sex such as rape, sexual conduct with a minor, and sexual assault. Their information is entered into a sex offender registry by the County Sheriff or the federal government. The state and national databases are made available to the public as a safety resource.

If you wish to locate any sex offenders in Kentucky, you can visit the state’s sex offender registry . Please keep in mind that the state of Kentucky cannot guarantee the accuracy and reliability of the information in the system. This is because not all sex offenders follow the law. Some of the information may no longer be current such as an offender’s place of residence.

Bail and Bondsman

The court can permit the temporary release of an accused with the condition that money is put down to serve as a guarantee that he will appear at his trial. This permission is called bail. In Bell County, the bond (or bail) is set by the Circuit-District-Family Court Judges or Trial Commissioner. In some cases, an accused may not be able to post bail due to financial constraints. If this happens, a local bondsman can be hired to act as a surety. He will be held liable by the court to pay the entire bail amount should the accused fail to appear in court for his trial. The bondsman typically charges a non-refundable fee which is 10% of the bail amount.

The commercial bail bond industry has been outlawed 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). A warrant is required to arrest a fugitive who has fled to Kentucky if the bonds agent is from out of state. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.
