What Are Warrant Records and Where Can They Be Found?

The Georgia State Legislature created the Warrant Records Act in Georgia in 2005. This Act created a new process for obtaining arrest warrants, as well as other criminal records, and placed it within the jurisdiction of the Georgia Supreme Court. It also requires that any arrest that is made in Rabun County must be reported to the circuit court within two business days. The warrant must then be served personally or by first-class mail. If a warrant is issued for an individual, he or she will be expected to appear at the court on the date scheduled. If they do not, then their warrant will be continued and they will be found in contempt of court.

What are the purposes of these new laws? One of the purposes is to prevent fraud from executing illegal transactions. For instance, if a person were to purchase a watch in Rabun County, and subsequently the purchaser didn’t show up and the deed was not completed then that would be considered fraud. Likewise, if a person were to hire someone in Rabun County without verifying employment, that could be considered a criminal act. Through the use of warrant records, those accused of committing crimes are now required to disclose themselves if they are facing an investigation.

How are warrants issued? Warrants can only be issued in the county where the person has been arrested. If no arrest has been made, then the warrant is granted based on information provided by the person being charged. In some instances, the state supreme court may add additional requirements to the warrant, such as stating the crime that the person is accused of is a felony, or that there is reason to believe that person may have committed another crime. If there is a dispute about whether a person has a valid warrant, then a judge is generally required to issue a warrant of arrest.

Where can you find out more about Georgia warrant records? There are online websites that have access to the warrant database. Some of these websites are able to perform searches for free; others charge a nominal fee for their warrant records and background information. If you do choose to use a website that charges a fee, it is important to make sure that the website has verifiable and current search results.

How are warrants issued? Warrant applications are usually filed with the county clerk in the county where the person is charged. The clerk then makes a decision on whether or not to grant the warrant. Applying for warrants online is highly recommended, because it makes it easier to obtain information about a person’s warrants and arrest records.

If you are interested in applying for a warrant online, you should first know the exact nature of the warrant. The type of warrant that is present may not always be obvious. A grand jury must sign a warrant of one type or another before a person can be arrested. A warrant can also be granted by a judge upon the basis of probable cause.
