Warrant Records – Why You Should Know About Them

Warrant Records in Mason County West Virginia are maintained by the clerk of court. This office is not responsible for producing the records but it does maintain them. To perform searches on a person’s record, one must visit the office and fill out an application that includes information about the person’s name and current address. Within twenty-four hours, the clerk will contact you and present you with the results. Once you have these results in hand, you then have the opportunity to either renew the warrant or obtain a new warrant.

When a warrant is issued based on probable cause to believe that a person has committed a crime, it gives police officers permission to search any location within the jurisdiction for evidence of the person’s guilt. A copy of the probable cause warrant is then forwarded to the local police department for use in making arrests. In most cases, the police department makes the arrest. They then notify the person’s attorneys, who then make arrangements for their client to be arrested. The person is taken into custody without any warrant. If there is no warrant out for the person’s arrest, the attorney is notified and attempts to make an arrest.

Warrant records contain data related to an individual’s criminal history. These records include the person’s name, date of birth, social security number, place of employment, and more. The data is updated regularly to ensure that warrant records are accurate.

People can challenge the legality of a search by requesting that records be sealed from public access. This can be done through different agencies, such as the local courthouse or the circuit court. If this request is denied, the person can file a motion to suppress challenging the constitutionality of the search. The motion requires the clerk to disclose the specific information that is requested. If the court rules in favor of the person challenging the warrant, the records will then be sealed from public access.

An experienced criminal defense attorney can advise you on your options. Because these types of warrants can only be issued in some circumstances, there may be collateral to go with the warrant. In other words, the person must prove that there is probable cause to believe that the person committed the crime that resulted in the warrant. If the person can not produce the evidence that they say they have, they might have their warrant dismissed. However, if they can provide the evidence that they say they have, this might help in getting the warrant thrown out.

It is best to hire an experienced attorney to handle situations involving warrants and criminal records. Since the laws vary from state to state, it is important that the right person is selected to defend your rights. A good attorney can help the person stay out of jail while they prove themselves innocent. They can also get the charges against their client dismissed if they can prove the crime did not actually occur. If they can do this, the person may be able to stay out of jail while the case is resolved.
