How to Search For Criminal History Records on Anyone You Want

Warrant Records in Winona County Minnesota are similar to other police department records, with one exception. Unlike a criminal arrest record, a criminal conviction does not have to be expunged (removed) before you can obtain these types of records. An outstanding traffic ticket will stay on your driving record until you pay the fine or show satisfactory proof that the ticket was not your fault. Similarly, if you are an employer and choose to check your potential employee’s criminal past, you are only required to show proof of the employee’s identity. You do not have to release the information to the prospective employee.

All criminal cases have “warrants of arrests” listed, even if the person was never arrested. Warrants are filed when someone is accused of a crime, either by a citizen or police officer. Warrant documents contain the name and current address of the person accused of the crime, as well as the specific charges. Warrant records may also include searches done by law enforcement agencies, including FBI and local police. Warrant searches are performed for a wide variety of reasons, such as verification of residency, suspicion of abuse, or tracking down stolen property.

To access the most current information on a person’s arrest record, you must go directly to the courthouse in the county where the arrest took place. Most counties list warrants with the county courthouse, but some states list warrants with the county courts. In states that use “judicial proceedings” as their form of procedure, warrants may be filed with the state court instead of the county courthouse. Some warrant searches may be free, but others require a small fee. Some warrants are granted automatically, while others require the individual to personally appear before a judge to secure a signature on the document.

State and federal laws regarding warrants and their searches differ greatly. Warrant searches can be performed directly at the courthouse, or through the local police. If you wish to search for a state-wide or national warrant, it is best to go directly to the courthouse. It is better to have the correct county or state number rather than try to guess. The first thing you want to do if you are arrested is to contact your lawyer, not to discuss details of your arrest, but to let them know where you are and to gather any information they can find about your arrest.

You will likely have to appear in court before a judge in order to get a warrant. If you have an outstanding warrant for your arrest, it could make it very difficult for you to leave jail, let alone go back home. The judge will issue the warrant, along with an arrest warrant, so that it can be found and returned to the police department. The judge will also notify the person that their arrest for whatever offense has been made against them.

Warrant records can be searched by anyone who has a reason to believe that the person has committed a crime. This means that you can perform your own warrant search, or can hire an investigator to look into the matter for you. Whichever way you choose to find out this information, there is no need to feel threatened by the idea. Warrant records are public record, and are available to anyone who needs to obtain them.
