The Definition of a Warrant
Law enforcement agents can't just randomly arrest or search individuals that they believe to be involved in a crime. In order to prevent police officers from trampling on the rights of citizens, there is a due process that must be followed, and a warrant is one of these processes. A warrant is simply a signed document from a judge, allowing police to take an action. Depending upon the type of warrant, that action can be the arrest of a named individual or the search of a residence.
Judges can sign off on three major types of warrants: Search Warrants, Bench Warrants, and Arrest Warrants. Each one is different depending upon the situation.
What is an Arrest Warrant?
An arrest warrant is a legal document that is signed by a judge and enables law enforcement to make an immediate arrest of an individual. These are often issued when a crime has been committed and the police have a particular suspect that they would like to apprehend. Arrest warrants give police enforcement the right to even enter homes to apprehend a suspect if necessary.
How Do You Find Out If Someone Has An Arrest Warrant Against Them?
Some law enforcement agents will notify suspects of an arrest warrant via a letter at the last known address or through a phone call. While others swoop down and make an immediate arrest. At a nominal cost, the local police department will provide you with arrest information for an individual. However, you should never check your own record in this manner because you will be immediately arrested if there are active warrants on your record. The easiest approach is to make use of an online public records service that will provide you with all of the information in one easy to read format.
What is a Bench Warrant?
It's extremely important to attend any court appearances that you are scheduled for. If you do not appear in court, a judge will hold you in contempt of court and sign a bench warrant with your name on it. From this point on, you will instantly be considered a fugitive from justice in the eyes of the law.
This court order will allow the police to arrest you on sight and even enter your home in order to apprehend you. It's important to remember that there is no statute of limitations for a bench warrant. This type of warrant never expires and will only be cleared upon your death or arrest.
What is a Search Warrant?
If the police believe that a crime has been committed or is being committed in a particular area, they will request a search warrant from a judge. This document will enable them to perform a complete search on the area listed on the warrant. They can be given full rights to walk into your home to gather evidence, and you are not able to stop them. An example of this can be seen when the police use warrants to seize narcotics or weapons from a home. It's important to keep in mind that a search warrant is extremely specific, and will often label the exact location, the specific evidence, and time of search. Police officers cannot continuously return to your home to gather more evidence unless another search warrant is obtained. If law enforcement officers violate any of the conditions of the warrant, they will not be allowed to present the evidence in court.
What are Outstanding Warrants and Active Warrants?
Outstanding warrants and active warrants are synonymous and used interchangeably in the court system. Active warrants are placed against an individual when they have either been suspected of committing a crime (arrest warrant) or if they did not appear for a court date (bench warrant). An active or outstanding warrant gives the police the right to immediately arrest the individual on sight, using all necessary means.
The term outstanding warrant is generally used when describing an older warrant from a fugitive that has been avoiding police arrest for quite some time. Do not confuse this term, and believe that it means `expired warrant', because arrest warrants never expire.
Searching For Arrest Warrants in Daviess County Kentucky
When doing a search for active arrest warrants, there are a few methods that can be used. You can go down to the local police department and obtain a records search by providing the officer with pertinent information and paying a small fee for the results. However, you are advised against using this method if you are checking up on yourself or a friend. If you are doing a personal search on yourself and an arrest warrant appears on record, you will be arrested immediately. If it is for a friend, you will be subjected to questioning and possibly risk your friend's freedom or even worse endanger your own freedom for aiding a fugitive from justice.
The most common method to search for arrest warrants is through a public online service like GovWarrantSearch.org. One major benefit of this type of online service is that you are able to gather information about yourself or anyone else in the privacy of your own home. In addition, a good online warrant search site will provide you with more information because you can either specifically search for warrants in Daviess County Kentucky, or you can perform either statewide or even a nationwide search to review an individual's complete record. This saves you numerous trips to multiple police departments. You should also keep in mind that a visit to the local police department will only show you results from that local area and you could be missing information from other jurisdictions.
Is It Possible To Have An Arrest Warrant On File And Not Know About It?
Probably one of the biggest misconceptions of arrest warrants is that the police will notify you and allow you to surrender yourself with an attorney. Sure, this happens sometimes, but law enforcement agents aren't required to make proper notification in advance of incarceration. Most people are informed of the warrant at the time of their arrest. Depending on the crime and workload of the police department, officers may arrive at your place of work, home, or the home's of family and friends to attempt to serve their warrant and make an arrest.
How Can I Avoid Being Apprehended With An Arrest Warrant On File?
Avoiding arrest with an arrest warrant on file would certainly prove to be a difficult life, and not recommended. The police can make an arrest at your home or work, so you will always be looking over your shoulder. Police records show that the majority of individuals with an arrest warrant against them are arrested on a minor traffic stop. An arrest warrant never goes away, and the police will eventually catch up with you.
When Does A Warrant Expire?
The only type of warrant that has an expiration date is a search warrant. Arrest warrants and bench warrants will only expire upon the death of the convict or a court appearance (usually due to an arrest). These types of warrants do not have any statute of limitations and have no expiration date.
General Information from wikipedia:
Daviess County, Kentucky
Daviess County, is a county in the U.S. state of Kentucky.It is the fifty-eighth county in order of formation; formed from a part of Ohio County on January 14, 1815. The county's borders were altered in 1829 to form Hancock County, in 1830 to absorb a small area surrounding Whitesville, in 1854 to cede land to McLean County, and in 1860 to annex forty-four square miles from Henderson County. Daviess County measures 463 square miles (1,200 km2), making it eighteenth in size in the commonwealth. The population estimate for 2008 is 94,418. It is included in the Owensboro, Kentucky, Metropolitan Statistical Area. Its county seat is Owensboro. The county is named for Colonel Joseph Hamilton Daveiss (a recording error in the State Clerk's office accounts for the error in spelling, which was never corrected), the U.S. Attorney who prosecuted Aaron Burr.
Daviess County is part of the Western Coal Fields region of Kentucky. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 476 square miles (1,233 km2), of which 462 square miles (1,197 km2) is land and 14 square miles (36 km2) is water. The northern half of the county along the Ohio River is relatively flat with a few rolling hills dotting the landscape. The southern portion is considerably different in that it is mostly rolling hills intermixed with flat valleys. The southern portion of the county was, in many cases, mined for coal during the history of the region. Most mining occurred in the rolling hills of the southern half of Daviess County along Panther Creek and other tributaries. Daviess County as a whole, was not as well 'known' for its coal mining history like many of the other counties found in the Western Coal Fields region of Kentucky. Still, it does retain a rather rich history in the industry as more information becomes available to the public.Distillery/Distilled Spirit ProductionDaviess County has long held a reputation as the leading place in the world for the production of distilled spirits, chiefly Kentucky bourbon, since the early 1880s. During the 19th century there were as many as 18 distilleries opearating in Daviess County where today there are just three with one having its roots in Daviess County going back to 1869; the former Glenmore Distillery Company which was originally the R. Monarch Distillery.Local histories say a man named Walter McFarland, who moved here from North Carolina, began making whiskey and peach brandy in either 1804 or 1805 on a 200-acre (0.81 km2) estate just south of Panther Creek on what is now U.S. 431.Sometime between 1800 and 1810, Cornelius Westerfield began distilling corn on his farm three miles (5 km) southwest of Whitesville, Kentucky on the banks of Deserter Creek. It closed in 1872, after more than 60 years.By the 1880s, there were 18 large distilleries operating in Daviess County at the same time. Charles Medley Distillers Kentucky is at least the 59th distillery in the county's history.Trinidad-based Angostura Limited bought the Medley Distillery in 2007 with plans to make its entrance into the world's bourbon market. But the severe global recession has slowed plans for starting bourbon production in Daviess County for the first time since 1992.The following is list of distillerys operating in 1883Owensboro Distilling Company, founded 1880

Coal MiningThe Southwestern portion of the county around the Panther Creek area was heavily mined through the 1960s till the early 1990s. After 1998 large tracts of mined land were left unclaimed. Then after a lengthy search for contractors by the State of Kentucky's Division of Abandoned Mine Lands, work commenced on the largest tract, a 42-acre (170,000 m2) tract once part of the now defunct Green Coal Company. The 42 acres (170,000 m2) of unclaimed land were part of Green Coal Company's mine once known as the 'Panther Surface Mine'. Green Coal Company was a staple mining company in Daviess County and was based nearby in Henderson, Kentucky.Green Coal CompanyReclamation work commenced at the site on Nov. 8, 1999, and was completed April 14, 2000. The licensed blaster employed by the contractor blasted the highwall into the pit, resulting in a reduced effort to grade and dress the final slope. Enough topsoil was gained from the area above the highwall to allow a growing medium for re-vegetation purposes. Through innovative field techniques and extraordinary cooperation from the contractor, this site has been returned to a very safe, stable and productive property. All 42 acres (170,000 m2) of this project was reclaimed expending $127,538.82 of the available bond. The land is now safe for the public and is considered prime farm property once again.
