How to Check For Warrant Records

Warrant Records in Mclean County, Kentucky are held in the courts of Probate and are maintained by the clerk of court. The first warrants that were filed under the act were in 1832. All warrants that have been recorded are available to the public through these courthouses. There is a fee that is required when one is searching for this information.

When there is a warrant out for your arrest, you may be contacted by the police. They will tell you what warrant is being issued for and the name of the person who is accused. In some cases, the person arrested will be let go while in police custody. If you are being asked to go to jail, at least you know for sure that you are legally innocent until you are formally charged.

Warrant records will show that a person has been taken into custody because they were suspected of wrongdoing. When you go through the process of getting a criminal background check on that person, you can find out if there are warrants out for their arrest. This is not as easy to do as it used to be. With the invention of the internet, most warrant information is only available to law enforcement officials for their particular jurisdiction.

It was possible for a person to have legal records, but not a public one until the year 1986. At that point, Congress passed the Freedom of Information Act, which states that any public document is available to anyone who requests it. Prior to this time, police had to obtain a court order in order to view any public documents. Therefore, any information that pertains to a person cannot be accessed without a court order.

You can also search for a warrant online. Many people prefer to hire private investigators to run a record search on a person. However, since this type of investigation can be very expensive, many people prefer to access a public record instead.

If you have a warrant out for your arrest, the easiest way to find out about it is to look online for the courthouse in the jurisdiction where you were arrested. This can often be done at a public records database. Once you have this information, you can contact the courthouse or law enforcement agency to find out whether or not the record has been released and if so, the reason behind it.
