Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Sex offenders are mandated by law to register their information with the state that they currently reside in. The information is entered into the state sex offender registry as well as the national sex offender registry maintained by the federal government. These databases are accessible to the public as a safety resource. Sex offenders are defined as individuals who are guilty of committing a sexually oriented offense such as rape, sex trafficking, and sexual assault.

Any individual who wishes to locate any sex offenders living in their neighborhood in Putnam County can check the registry

Keep in mind that the disclaimer provided contains important information that you should read and understand before using the database. As some sex offenders may fail to obey the law, there will be information in the registry that is inaccurate. For example, you might get an offender’s last known address or just the block that they live on.

Bail and Bondsman

If you are accused of a crime in Putnam County, you may be granted temporary release by the court while you await trial provided that you pledge a certain amount of money as a guarantee that you will appear for all your scheduled court appearances. This process is called bail. If you miss one appearance, the money you pledged to the court will be forfeited.

To post bail, you must inquire with the court on where the payment will be mind. In some cases, bail is posted at the Sheriff’s Office while in others, it may be paid at the Clerk of Courts. If you are unable to post bail because you lack the funds, you can get a bondsman to post bail for you in exchange for 10% of the bail amount. If you are a high risk defendant, the bondsman may require you to put down collateral equal to the remaining amount of the bail as added insurance. In return for the payment, the bondsman will guarantee to the court that he will pay the entire bail amount if you do not appear at your trial.
