Ohio Warrant Records

Warrant Records in Scioto County, Ohio are one of the most prolific and valuable databases maintained by the city of Cleveland. Within the county are warrants issued under various provisions such as Sections 4 and 5 of the Ohio Constitution which authorizes local law enforcement officials to “arrest and detain any person” on suspicion of crime. Warrant records also contain data regarding violations of traffic and other statutes by local government employees, such as motor vehicle violations. Warrant records are part of the public domain and are available to all who request them through a process of right of access. When requesting documents through the right of access act, individuals are entitled to an inspection of the documents upon presentation of a valid identification, which is usually a state drivers license or Ohio State Department of Licensing verification card.

Within the context of Ohio’s “Warrant Process,” a person may be arrested for any of a multitude of crimes whether the crime is capital or minor. If a warrant is issued for the arrest of that person, those records would be found within the county criminal records repository. Additionally, if a warrant is issued for the arrest of that person for a specified violation of a traffic rule, then those records would also be contained within the repository. Warrant records are retained within the database and are accessible to the general public.

Ohio State Department of Licensing is responsible for maintaining the database. Once a warrant or a violation becomes a matter of public record, it can be listed in the Centralized Records of Criminal History. This is done via the Ohio State Department of Licensing’s Vital Records Web site. In some instances, violations are designated as “fines” or “penalties” and not arrests. However, in order to make certain that warrants are actually recorded, and for evidentiary purposes, these violations are recorded as an infraction and are thus removed from the Vital Records Web site. Warrant searches can also be conducted through the sheriff of the county in which the person was arrested.

In addition, during an interview or any other time that a person is suspected of any criminal activity, an arrest warrant can be obtained through the Ohio Sate Court’s Office of the clerk of court. In this case, the warrant will be filed with the clerk, who will seek the criminal records of that person and, if any warrant is present, will perform the arrest. Any person that is served with an arrest warrant will also be instructed to appear in court within a set amount of time.

If a person’s constitutional rights have been violated and the person arrested for this violation is subsequently convicted of this violation, a record of this arrest will be kept on file at the county courthouse. Arrest warrants will typically contain a description of the crime, date of arrest, name of the arresting officer, and physical location of the arrest. Additionally, the details of any hearing held pertaining to this case, date and location of said hearing, evidence presented at the trial, and any other pertinent information pertaining to the case. If any portions of the record are missing, they may be searched by contacting the circuit court clerk. This information is then made available to the public.

Warrant records are not only interesting to law officials, but also to the general public. Anyone can access these records and obtain all kinds of information that pertains to any individual. This includes more personal information, such as a person’s date of birth, marriage/divorce records, criminal records, sex offenses, and past employment records. If you are interested in obtaining any of this information, you will find that you need to obtain warrant records online.
