How to View a Warrant

Warrant Records are records that are filed by an authorized law enforcement agency for the violations committed by a person. Warrant records contain information about an individual or an organization when such an entity is served with a court order for some reason. In Atascosa County, warrant records are maintained at the Jail Docket Clerk’s Office under the provisions of Article Section 1320 of the Texas Civil Rights Act. Warrant records must be filed within a few days from the issuance of the court order and it must be accompanied by an Affidavit of Service (formally known as a “Produce Certificate of Service”). Pursuant to the terms of the act, service can only be made on ” aggrieved person” who has knowledge of the service.

Warrant Records in Atascosa County Texas are generally available for review within two weeks from issuance of the warrant. This is known as the “expedited service” or “expedited discovery.” If the person being served does not appear in court to answer the warrant, or if the party attempting to serve a warrant cannot reasonably locate the person, the warrant will be “dropped.” If the investigating officer does not obtain a copy of the arrestee’s identification card, the record is considered “bounded” and the record cannot be obtained for later review. Pursuant to Texas statutory law, arrest warrants are sealed or placed in an envelope with an instructions for delivery.

To obtain copies of warrants in Atascosa County, one may need to follow certain procedures. First, the person has to apply for the records either online or at the courthouse where the warrant was issued. The applicant should also submit proof that the person is an actual person, not a representative of any organization. It is usually the agent of the accused that is summoned to respond to the warrant. This person is then given the opportunity to show cause why the warrant should not be granted.

If the person does not appear in court, the papers are then served personally to the person. If these attempts to serve the documents are not successful, then the records are sent by mail. A person can request that criminal records be sent by mail by submitting a copy of a certified application. The same process is used for those seeking criminal background information on someone else.

Criminal record checks on particular individuals are now easily accessible on the internet. This is because Texas is one of the few states that have put in place real time databases that store warrant records. These databases contain all types of warrant information and serve as a repository for local law enforcement agencies. In Atascosa County, any warrants that were issued within the jurisdiction of the county are recorded in its local courthouse. Warrant information can also be obtained directly from the Texas statewide sex offender registry.

Accessing a person’s criminal records is also done by using a U.S. search engine. All you need to do is type in the person’s name, along with the state the person lives in, to determine if there are any public records available concerning the person. By using this method, you can find out if the person has ever been convicted of any crime. You can also determine if the person has any outstanding warrants out for their arrest. If you find any information that interests you, there are many online search services that allow you to obtain full details on a person.
