What Are Warrant Records?

Warrant records are basically a background check that is conducted on an individual based on the issuance of a court order or federal grand jury subpoena. When the person fails to show up at his court date as scheduled, a warrant will be issued for his arrest. The warrant will specify the violation that will warrant his arrest, including any previous arrests or charges. Warrant records are retained indefinitely and can be obtained from the sheriff of the county where the person is wanted. However, it must first be submitted to the circuit court of the jurisdiction where the person is wanted for execution of the warrant.

Warrant records are used to conduct background investigations on people. There are many purposes for searching for these records such as the issuance of a court summons, to execute a search warrant, or to serve legal papers regarding a legal case. People also use these records to investigate the backgrounds of new neighbors and business partners. Warrant searches are also used by the media to obtain information about people they are interviewing.

In the state of Arkansas, there are many requirements that have to be met in order for a person to obtain access to a warrant. First, there has to be a formal arrest for the person to be able to have one. An arrest warrant is issued by a judge after he or she has probable cause to believe that the person has committed a certain crime. Proving that the person committed the crime is not enough to get a warrant; other things that constitute proof include entering into a plea bargain, providing DNA samples, or saying that the person had a mental competence for the commission of the crime.

After an arrest, a warrant will be issued, and will last for a specific amount of time. Unless the person can prevent the arrest by producing a valid license to carry a concealed weapon, such as a firearm, the warrant will be carried out. If the arrested person can present valid reasons for the arrest, the warrant will be cancelled immediately. However, if the accused does not have the means to cancel the warrant, then it will be enforced until it is cancelled by the court.

Warrant records are kept in two different places: in the county where the arrest took place, and in the county where the warrant was granted. In the county where the warrant was granted, you will be able to access these records through the courts, whereas in the county where the warrant was granted, you will have to get the warrant sealed. The reason why warrants are sealed is to protect the person who was arrested. If the person is a sex offender, it may be difficult to find out whether or not he or she has been convicted of a sex offense, so it is not uncommon for warrants to be suspended for periods of time before being released again.

People can obtain background information on the people that they live around. For example, let’s say that you want to hire a new nanny to watch your children while you are away. Before letting that person into the home, you can search for any warrants that were issued for their arrest. This way, you will be sure that your children are safe.
