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 Jasper County Missouri

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 Jasper County Missouri, 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.

Geographical history Before European contact, the area that today makes up Jasper county was the domain of the Osage Indians who called themselves the Children of the Middle Waters (Ni-u-ko'n-ska). This was probably because their dominion encompassed the land between the Missouri and Osage rivers to the north, the Mississippi river to the east, and the Arkansas river to the south. To west were the great plains where they hunted buffalo.A long standing tradition states that DeSoto spent the winter of 1541 in the area to the north and west of the Ozark mountains and camped in and around the Jasper county area. There is no evidence to substantiate this tradition as he left no records of his visit. The first verifiable European encounter with the Osage was in the late 17th century through their association with French fur traders who they supplied with pelts.In 1682 Robert de La Salle canoed down the length of the Mississippi river to the Gulf of Mexico, naming the entire Mississippi basin “La Louisiane” in honor of Louis XIV. In 1699 Louisiana was named an administrative district of New France therefore, as far as the Europeans (France England and Span) were concerned, the area of Jasper county was French territory. The French further divided the Louisiana district into an upper and lower parts with the Arkansas river being the dividing line.With France and Spain’s defeat in the Seven Years War in 1763, France ceded Louisiana to Spain and the most of the rest New France to the British who also received Florida from Spain. The Spanish District of New Madrid, containing present day Jasper county, was the southern most of the five Spanish districts comprising Upper Louisiana. France regained control of Louisiana through the secret treaty of San Ildefonso in 1800 but Napoleon decide to sell the territory to the United States in 1803.The Osage began treaty-making with the United States in 1808 with the first secession of lands in Missouri (Osage Treaty). The Osage moved from their homelands on the Osage River in 1808 and moved to the Jasper county area of western Missouri. In 1825, the Osages ceded their traditional lands across Missouri, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. They were first moved onto a southeast Kansas reservation in the Cherokee Strip, on which the city of Independence, Kansas now sits and finally to Indian territory in 1872.The Upper Louisiana Territory, including the Jasper county area, was renamed the Missouri Territory on June 4, 1812 to avoid confusion with the state of Louisiana which joined the Union in 1812 and the New Madrid District became New Madrid county. Old Lawrence county was established in 1815 from New Madrid county west of the St. Francis River and north of Arkansas county and consisted of all of present-day southwestern MO and part of Northwestern AR.Lawrence county was short-lived, however, as three years later (1818) it was combined with part of Cape Girardeau county and renamed Wayne County. By 1819, Arkansas Territory had been created, and Wayne county lost some of it’s area but still consisted of most of southern Missouri from present-day Wayne county west to the Kansas State Line and south along the AR State Line.In 1820 all of Missouri Territory was admitted into the Union as the state of Missouri and in 1831 Crawford county was carved out of the original Wayne. This new division covered all the southern part of Missouri and included in its boundaries, Jasper county. This alignment was also short lived as in 1833 Greene county was cut from Crawford county from the Niangua River west to the Kansas State Line.January 5, 1835, a big piece was cut out of Greene and organized as 'Barry' county. In 1838 Barry county was divided into four parts to be called Barry, Dade, Newton and Jasper counties. At this time Jasper was not a full fledged county but was attached to Newton county and it would not be until 1841. County Organization On January 29, 1841 the Missouri legislature enacted a bill authorizing the organization of Jasper county and was named in honor of Sergeant William Jasper, a hero in the American Revolutionary War. The County Court first divided the area into three townships: North Fork, Center Creek and Marion but later it was divided into 15 townships which remain in an unincorporated status to the present time.A temporary seat of justice was established, Thursday, February 25, 1841 in the home of George Hornback. It was a 12 x 16 foot log cabin, one and a half miles northwest of Carthage on Spring River. Samuel M. Coolley, Jeremiah Cravens and Samuel B. Bright were the first justices of the Jasper County Court. John P. Osborn, the first sheriff, was ordered to give public notice that the county court of Jasper County shall meet in the home of George Hornback until the permanent seat of justice was established.A permanent county seat was chosen in March 1842 and designated by the name of Carthage. A one story single-room wooden structure with a large door in the south, was completed on June 29, 1842, and was located on the north side of the present public square in Carthage. This courthouse was later replaced by a larger two story brick & stone structure that was completed in 1854, which also functioned as the county jail.By the start of the American Civil War in 1861 there were several small river mill settlements, some mining camps and about nine or ten towns (seven platted) in Jasper County, Missouri. The county seat of Carthage, Missouri had an estimated population between four and five hundred at that time. The newer brick courthouse was used as a hospital during the American Civil War and was destroyed by fire during fighting in October 1863. By the end of the Civil War Carthage had been evacuated and completely destroyed, and much of Jasper County lay in ruins. By order of the governor the courthouse was relocated to the schoolhouse at Cave Springs (near present day La Russell, Missouri) in 1865. Other temporary locations within the county were later used over the next three decades until the current Jasper County Courthouse was constructed on the Carthage square in the mid 1890s.
