When you look for an arrest warrant search in Jackson County, WV, you are bound to come across other legal orders issued in the name of the subject. Typically, an inquiry of this nature will also reveal details on the release of criminal summons and bench warrants. In fact, with a bit of effort, you could also find the subpoenas issued to call this person to court.

However, what you need to know is that Jackson County active warrants are poles apart from any other judicial directive. In fact, the non restrictive nature of arrest warrants is what sets them apart from other legal orders like bench warrants and the like. Directives for arrests when issued in case of serious misdemeanors and felonies stay valid for almost 100 years and across the geographical boundaries of the state in which they were issued.

Once an outstanding warrant is served, details on the detention are kept by the police in their arrest records and this information is also relayed to the judiciary by the return of the order. At this point, the magistrate’s office and that of the county clerk also make a note of the detention and get ready for the bail hearing. In the meanwhile, the offender is kept in police custody.

When the case goes to trial, information on the proceedings of the tribunal including the verdict, sentencing and incarceration are also filed in the court dockets database. You can access this repository by visiting the office of the clerk of court. Also, you can get civil case records from this department. The addresses of the agencies discussed in this article are given below:

  • The office of the sheriff: PO Box 106, Ripley, West Virginia 25271
  • The court of the magistrate: 214 W Main St, Ripley, WV 25271
  • The department of the county clerk: PO Box 427, Ripley, West Virginia 25271
