Are You Thinking About Using a Search Warrant to Check Up on Someone?
Warrant records are one of the most requested public records. These records contain information regarding any felony charges a person has been convicted of and if they have ever been arrested, or on suspicion of crime. They are considered part of the public domain, and anyone is entitled to request their arrest records. The right to keep these records is not granted to you without a court order. So how do you go about getting your own copy of this data?
In Kentucky, criminal charges are something that happen in the eyes of the court. If a person is accused of a crime in any court of law, the judge has the power to enter into an arrest warrant and have it carried out. Arrest warrants are detailed within the document, listing every crime that a person may have committed. Therefore, if a person’s name appears on the police blotters then there is every chance they will be arrested.
Warrant records are extremely valuable when it comes to checking up on a person. You may be a parent searching for any nanny or babysitter who has suddenly disappeared. You want to be sure that your children are in safe hands, and a background search on the person will let you know if they have had previous brushes with the law. Likewise, an employer using a job applicant as a reference may want to check out their background. A criminal record will let them know that the person is a safe person to deal with.
There are several ways to access this information. You can contact the local courthouse where the warrant was issued. Sometimes they can provide you with the information online through their website. Sometimes it is harder to find this information, and you may need to hire an attorney. This can cost you money, but if you are in a dire situation then it may be worth it.
Some states allow you to perform your own search for a criminal record. The first thing you will need to do is go to the courts and request this information. A warrant will show up on the docket if the person has been convicted of a crime. The courts do not give out public information because they fear that criminals will use the information to their benefit. In order to view this information you will need to have an attorney to explain to you the ins and outs of a warrant. In some cases it can be hard to get the information without an attorney.
Another option for viewing a person’s criminal records is at the county jail where the person has been arrested. This will not give you access to the warrant. However, if you are the arresting officer then you will be able to see all the information on the person that was arrested. If a person has a prior criminal record then it may affect their employment opportunities.
