Accessing Warrant Records
Warrant Records in Charlevoix County, Michigan are public documents. However, this right is not without limitation. Once a person is served with a copy of the document, they can have it immediately photocopied for their own private use. This means that anyone can access warrants and have an instant read of their history.
In order to find out who has been issued a warrant, you will need the first and last name of the person involved, along with the address of where they were arrested. You can also find this on the person’s driver’s license or social security card. The social security card often contains the most current information since it is issued monthly.
When a person has a warrant, they are considered to be “under arrest.” In other words, they are being held without bail while the courts decide if they should be released. Without the proper legal documentation, a person can spend many days without food, water or sleep. This is considered to be very degrading for someone who has just been arrested for a serious crime. By carrying around a warrant, a person can greatly increase their chances of more severe penalties.
One of the most difficult tasks when dealing with criminal investigations is tracking down a person’s court date. If a warrant is found, the courts will require that it be immediately turned over to the court that issued it. This can often create a problem since most people don’t realize that warrants are even an option for them.
Warrant records are not always public. A person can only access these records from the police station that issued the warrant. This is done by requesting the courts’ records for the particular person involved. If a person is doing a criminal background check on someone, they can access their record and see if there were any warrants out for their arrest. Otherwise they cannot obtain this type of information without having to hire a private investigator.
It is important to understand that a warrant is a legally binding contract between a person and the police department that found the person’s warrant. If the person does not follow the terms of the warrant, then they can be held criminally responsible for whatever offense was committed. If one breaks a warrant, they could face jail time. However, one should know that these warrants are not always immediately available. Sometimes the person must wait for a couple weeks before they can access their record.
