What Are Warrant Records?

Warrant Records in Dallas County, Alabama have been in existence since before the arrival of Texas itself. In fact, Warrant Records have become something of an American tradition. Before the revolution, warrant was the legal term for an arrest warrant that had been “written.” A warrant could be for any number of reasons, and there were warrants for a wide variety of items.

Prior to the revolution, warrant was actually simply a document that listed the person accused of the crime. It specified the crime, date of birth, and location. This kind of document was used by the constable and the judicial officers to prevent the transfer of goods or services into another province without the knowledge or consent of the party involved. Warrant records are still used today, despite the fact that they are rarely used in criminal cases because there is no longer a need to identify the person accused of a crime.

Anytime there is a suspicion that a person is engaging in criminal activities, a warrant will be issued by a judge. If the person fails to appear at his or her court hearing on the specified time, the warrant will be executed. The failure to appear in court may result in a citation or arrest warrant being issued.

If a person is accused of a crime, or if an arrest is made, then the accused has the right to go to court and to make a motion to suppress the evidence against them. A motion to suppress is simply an attempt to defeat the evidence against a person. The process of trying to suppress the evidence typically begins at the local courthouse where the warrant was issued, or at the place where the warrant was granted. If the motion to suppress is successful, then the evidence will not be allowed in the criminal case.

In order to find out who owns a particular warrant, there are many places to look for this information. In some counties, the sheriff’s department or the local courthouse will have this information. Other places to check are: the state courthouse, the county police department or the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). Another great place to look is online. In most states there is an online database that allows you to search for a person’s criminal record and to obtain other information about the person.

Warrant records are used to track down people who are wanted on outstanding warrants out of state, pending arrest warrants or simply to prevent the issuance of a warrant on a person who has committed a crime in another state. Many people have a misconception that if they have a warrant out for their arrest, it indicates they are a danger to the community and should be arrested immediately. The truth is that having a warrant does not mean a person is on the street and should be arrested immediately. Instead, the person’s warrant details the reason for their arrest, the reason for the warrant and the period of time the warrant is in effect.
