What Are Warrant Records?

Warrant records in Breathitt County, Kentucky are held in the local courthouse. In the event that an individual has been arrested for any type of crime, the individual’s name will appear on the police blotters. If an individual is convicted of a crime, their record will be found in the court house. If they are subsequently convicted of a crime, their record can also be found on the warrants that were obtained against them.

Warrant records are used to see if a person should be arrested for any type of crime. If a person is arrested, the arrest report will show a signature by a clerk that states the person was arrested under the authority of a warrant. These are legal documents that state the authority to arrest and detain the person for an unknown crime. This is necessary for many reasons, including evidence for arrests and trials, as well as to ensure a person is legally present when ordered to appear at a proceeding.

There are two different types of warrants that are used. The first is a civil warrant which means a judge has ordered someone to show up in court for an alleged violation of a law. The other is a federal warrant which is used for crimes of terrorism or national security. A federal warrant requires a person to have their signature and it must be attached to their name.

A person can challenge a search by requesting an investigation warrant. If they know the signature of the arresting officer, they can have their signature changed or obtain an affidavit stating that they did not know about the warrant. A search warrant cannot be based purely on an individual’s personal knowledge. If a person can provide a reliable source that the person committed the act stated in the warrant, this can help to support a claim of innocence.

Warrant records are kept in two separate places. One is the local courthouse where a person’s court case may have been filed. The other place is the FBI’s National Crime Information Center where these records are kept.

There are a number of reasons why someone might want to access a person’s criminal record. For example, many employers will perform background checks on potential employees. They may want to see if a person has a criminal record and if so, what the person has done. These records are available to the general public so all anyone need to do is go online and perform a basic search.
