Warrant Records – What is a Warrant?
Warrant Records in Jim Hogg County Texas are considered public information and are required to be disclosed whenever a person is arrested for a crime, regardless of whether the arrest was legal or not. The Texas Vital Records Office ( TXROS) holds the original copies of these records at the designated retention sites. These original records are then retained at the county clerk’s office and are available to the public on request. In some instances, a person may not have any knowledge that their warrant is active until they are served with a copy of the arrest warrant. If this happens, then it is wise to make an appointment with the local police station to find out if your warrant has been carried out and you know where you should send the fingerprints.
In Texas, there are two types of warrants that may be applied for: criminal and civil. A criminal warrant applies to an individual accused of a crime that is not specified by the state such as assault, murder, arson, possession of a weapon while committing a crime and so on. A civil warrant is a warrant that is issued by a judge based on probable cause that the person named in the warrant has committed a certain crime. Both criminal and civil warrants can be issued at any time.
In the case of an arrest, the arrest warrant is carried out by an officer designated by a judge, or by a deputy sheriff. Warrant records will show the name of the person accused of the warrant as well as the jurisdiction that he is being arrested in. Warrant records will also show the date the warrant was issued, the name of the person to whom the warrant was given, and the location of the arrest.
It is possible to avoid being charged with a warrant by making sure that one does not carry a firearm in the home when arrested. In addition, it is important to know the difference between a valid peace order and a criminal record. A peace order is simply a court order that prohibits a person from contacting a person in regard to that person’s protection. On the other hand, a criminal record refers to the violations that a person has been charged with. For example, if a person has sex in public, they may be required to register as a sexual offender. These records are kept in state and county databases.
In some cases, an arrest warrant can be issued for a crime that did not occur. This is known as an “expired warrant”. Warrant searches must be done within five business days of the issuance of the arrest warrant. You must then attend a hearing with your local courthouse or go to the police department to turn in the warrant application. The warrant will be referred to a clerk who will perform an exhaustive search of the person’s records and determine if there is a valid warrant. If not, then the warrant will be revoked.
To avoid an “expired” warrant, it is important that you do not commit the crime for which the warrant was issued. Otherwise, a warrant will be issued for whatever crime is committed. It is also important to understand what is contained in a person’s record. Warrant records allow employers to weed out applicants with previous criminal convictions. They allow law enforcement to track down and arrest criminals, and they even allow a peace officer to identify and apprehend a person in the commission of a crime when he or she is on duty.
