Warrant Records Can Reveal Everything That Concerns the Public

When a warrant is issued for the arrest of an individual, the name of that person and the crime for which he or she has been arrested are put into a searchable database, called the “warrant records.” The warrant records database contains a list of all warrants that have been issued by various courts throughout the state. The warrants can be general orders, warrants for arrest, writs of garnishment, bench warrants, affidavits, judgments and other related documents. Warrant records are maintained in separate files at each local courthouse.

The first step that is taken after a warrant is issued is to place the person named in the warrant under surveillance. In some counties, the police can perform this surveillance by placing an armed officer at the courthouse during business hours. If an arrest is made, the officer is immediately removed from the premises. The warrant then goes directly to the county courthouse where the criminal activity took place.

The judicial proceeding before the grand jury determines whether or not there is probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed. In some instances, the grand jury will issue an arrest warrant. The records that are generated as a result of this action are then used in court. The documents include the name of the person who was accused, date of birth, social security number, place of residence, names of neighbors, and more. Warrant records can also include bank account numbers, real property information, phone numbers and other pertinent information. This information is used as evidence in criminal cases.

Criminal defense attorneys use the warrant records to help their clients obtain relief from criminal charges. In instances when a person is arrested and taken into custody, the arrest warrant will often lead to further litigation after arrest. As criminal charges are based on suspicion, without knowing more about the allegations the client may never know whether or not their actions match the accusations. When the documents are reviewed by the defense, they can determine if there is any probable cause to believe the allegations. If so, a motion to suppress can be filed in court.

Warrant records can be an important tool used by employers to determine if an applicant is qualified for employment. Criminal background checks can be used to investigate claims of false arrest and excessive force by police. Warrant records can also be used in military trials of accused servicemen accused of desertion or similar crimes.

Warrant records have significant value to those who are accused of committing crimes. If a person’s constitutional rights are violated, a search of a person’s criminal history can reveal this information. It can also be used in civil litigation involving excessive or unreasonable behavior by police officers. A warrant records check can often provide peace of mind for businesses, homeowners, employers and others. Because searches are performed nationwide, they are available to anyone with internet access. This means access to warrant information can be easily accessed online.
