An arrest warrant search from Wayne County, MS, will be able to tell you if a person you know was ever involved in any unscrupulous acts. Make no mistake; active warrants are not just issued in case of homicides and assaults. These judicial orders are also used to bring in offenders who are charged with misdemeanor offenses.

The only difference here is how these directives are used and served. In the case of Class and C and D misdemeanors, the warrant will often have the bail amount mentioned on it. So, once a person is arrested, posting bail will get him out of jail. In contrast, a bail hearing is the only way to get out of detention when it has been effected under an active warrant issued in a felony.

Bench warrants, which are also directives for arrests, come with shorter validity periods and limited geographical jurisdiction. Regardless of the type of warrant that has been used, details on the detention will be included in the arrest records section of the police database when an offender is apprehended.

When you go for a warrant search in Wayne County, you will not just be told about the arrest orders that have been served and outstanding warrants, but also, you will be given pertinent information on when the subject was arrested and why. It is possible to seek this data from three state agencies; these are:
