April 15, 2020 Off By Glespynorson

Are you in a little trouble? Is the long arm of the law looking for you? You might want to learn how to check for warrants on yourself to either ease your mind or prepare you for a luxury stay in your local county jail. Regardless of the results from your searches, it is always best to know one way or the other. Getting arrested for warrants can be a little embarrassing, and even scary. Want to know how you can avoid this? Read on.

Have you Recently Committed a Crime?

This might seem like a ridiculous question, but why else would you want to check for warrants on yourself? Maybe you are extremely bored and want to push Google to the limits. Or you have been involved in something illegal and are worried about getting busted for it. Sometimes people unwittingly commit crimes because they could be ignorant of local laws regarding possession of prohibited animals and whatnot, but most people that are unaware that they have committed a crime are not worried about getting in trouble. So, one for sure way to determine whether or not you have a warrant is to figure out if you have done anything that merits having a warrant. If you have committed a crime, chances are you actually do have a warrant. If you are not careful about the way you search for confirmation regarding the warrant, you may end up in handcuffs on your search so be careful, or be prepared.

Do a Search in the County of Offense

So you were involved in some criminal activity and need to know whether or not you have a warrant. The first place to check is in the county you committed the crime in. Use your stellar search engine skills and locate the county court system website. Two states that don’t have official counties are Louisiana and Alaska. If you live in either of these states find out what court resides over the city you committed the crime in. Once you have the information about the court that rules over the jurisdiction of the crime find the website of that court and look for searchable records. Once you find the searchable area, put your name and birthdate in there and see what comes up. If the website allows warrant information to be obtained, you will find out right there if you have a warrant or not.

Make a Call to the Courthouse

In most cases, it is not so easy to see whether or not you have an active warrant on the county court website. Many counties do not divulge warrant information via a search. You may just have to pick up the phone, make a call to the courthouse and ask a live person. Some states have counties that actually have warrant hotlines that you can call in to and find current information regarding a warrant. If you wish to avoid going to jail, for the time being, it is always a good idea to at least try calling the county and asking.

Go to the Courthouse In Person

You may have a friend close enough to do you a favor and walk into the courthouse and ask. Although it seems like a good idea, it may not work. Many court establishments refrain from giving out personal information. One reason is that they would like for the person with the warrant to make a physical appearance. Unfortunately, this tactic mostly ends up with an arrest. However, in some cases, it can end up with a promise to show up in court and resolve the issue.
