Do I have a warrant?

You might. Even individuals who haven’t committed an offense may have a warrant issued for them, usually due to a clerical error or a similar unfortunate mistake. You may want to run a criminal record check to find out.

Warrants are typically associated with serious offenses, such as being a suspect in a robbery or driving with a suspended license. But, they can also be issued for more mundane reasons, such as not paying your parking tickets.

You can find out if you have a warrant by using direct or indiscreet methods. If you prefer doing the latter, you can use Web sites that search court records for you. But, you can also visit your local courthouse and check for yourself, or simply ask a police officer to run a search through the police department’s database.

    I am a Retired Correctional Officer and my advice to you is call the county jail where you received the tickets & ask them if you have any outstanding warrants for your arrest! You can always have someone else call for you and call from a cell phone or a pay phone if you are worried about your phone number being traced! It will give you "peace of mind" when you find out ~ Good Luck & Best Wished to You ~
