Criminal Background Check – Warrant Records

If you are a law abiding citizen, then you have a right to know what are warrant records. Warrant Records in Lincoln County, Wyoming are the same as any other state or county’s records. They are maintained by the local government under the Judicial Branch. The records will give all relevant information of a person like his criminal background, his residency, name, birth date etc.

The first stage is when the Warrant is issued by the Magistrates or the County Court. When the warrant is issued by the Magistrates, they normally say the person is guilty and the arrest is made without taking the person in custody personally. If the suspect fails to appear in court, the warrant is renewed by the court and it becomes active after 45 days. If the person does not abide by this and failure to show up for court is repeated, then the warrant is taken from the Magistrates and is cancelled. If the person fails to comply with this and shows up, then again warrant is cancelled by the court and it becomes active.

Once the warrant is cancelled, the records are taken back by the police and the case is closed. But, if the person fails to show up for court, then the warrant is renewed and if he does not obey this and continues to not come, then an arrest warrant is made. And, from then on, any attempt to get the person arrested is stopped.

In cases of serious crimes, like rape, murder, armed robbery, kidnapping, sexual assault, domestic violence etc, it becomes imperative that the person must have undergone thorough investigation. For example, if there is a case of armed robbery and the accused person has been arrested, then without any delay an order to arrest and search must be issued. This is done by the arresting officer and if there is no warrant for the crime, then arrest without warrant is made. The Warrant will be granted if there is a specific act or set of circumstances. But if no act is committed, then arrest with warrant is also made.

If you want to avoid such problems and if you have reasons to believe that your spouse is cheating on you, then you can do a background check on him and can find out whether a warrant is valid for his arrest. This can only be done if you know the details of the crime. But if you are doing it on your own, then you will have to rely on the police department and can only verify the existence of warrant if you have the necessary documents. Such records are not available in the public domain. So, the best option would be to go online and use one of the paid websites to do the research for you.

Another reason why one may require criminal background check is when a business person wants to hire new employees. Now, whether they are good or not is another question and to find this out by conducting a search, you will have to use the local government websites. But the information that you get will be very limited and will be biased. That is, you will get the names and the position in which the person was working at the time of the incident, but you cannot include details of the actual crime in the report made by the police.
