Warrant For Your Arrest? Go Away Already!

Warrant Records are a summary of any criminal or legal warrants that have been executed or issued in Rutherford County North Carolina. Any person that is wanted on an outstanding warrant has the right to a hearing before a judge and can be forced to appear before them. If these warrants are not satisfied, they are automatically released from the jail and can go free. To locate these records you need to locate your local courthouse and the website of the warrants department.

You can search for warrants by name or by location. To find out more information simply enter the details of the person wanted into the search box on the site. If the person is wanted for suspicion of breaking and entering, then their case will be sent to the Probable Cause division where they will be processed. The process for serving the warrant begins at the local sheriff’s office. If there is an outstanding warrant for the person’s arrest then this will also be investigated so that the warrant can be served.

The most basic of warrants is a misdemeanor warrant which is for a misdemeanor such as assault or disorderly conduct. These are easy to get as you only need to provide some personal information, and signature. If you have any contacts then this can help as well. This information is sent to the local police department for them to perform the arrest. However, warrants will remain in the county where they were first laid. If a warrant is laid for an arrest for an aggravated felony, which is punishable by more than one year in prison, then it is taken to the circuit court and the felony charges will be presented to a judge.

To be aware of such warrants when it comes time to execute a arrest, you should inform the person that you are about to make an arrest. They can then go ahead and arrange for their arrest warrant to be posted outside their home. If they are seen on video footage taking drugs from inside their home or working with drug dealers, then these warrants will be carried out. If not informed beforehand then they could still go ahead and carry out the plan of getting drugs without anyone catching them.

Warrant records are kept separate from the general public records at the courthouse. Therefore if there is a warrant out for your arrest, it will be kept in the custody of the law enforcement agencies. If the warrant is not carried out then the person will still be arrested under the jurisdiction of the court. This is to protect them, and the community at large, as there have been occasions where innocent people have been put to jail because they had a warrant out for their arrest.

It is important that you do not carry a warrant with you at all times. If you have a warrant for your arrest, then you should immediately stop all work related activity and advise your employer that you have been taken into police custody. Also, if you go to a party then inform the hosts that you are now under police protection. These are precautionary measures so that nothing untoward happens while you are away from home. There are no warrants for your arrest if you are not carrying one.
