Can someone please tell me how to find out if I have an arrest warrant? 13 Answers as of July 24, 2013I believe I may have arrest warrants and before I actually retain an attorney I want to know for certain I have one. I've called the sheriffs office, I've called the courthouse and they both said they don't give that information over the phone. Its ridiculous.

Go to the clerk's office and ask. Some will tell you. If there is, schedule a court appearance. Clerks generally do not have the sheriff deputy come over and arrest you. Go to the sheriff's office and ask, you will be arrested if there is one and a court date set immediately

As a general rule, neither the courts nor the police, sheriff, etc. will not tell you if you have a warrant out against you. The reason is that they expect a large portion of people would flee the jurisdiction if they knew for sure there was a warrant out against them.

Arrest warrants are not public information. If you take your ID to the detention center or precinct, they can check for you. However if you have one, they will take you into custody too. You may search court records at mdcourts.gov, in order to find out whether you have a bench warrant. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you evaluate the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to go to trial. Consider seeking a confidential consultation.

It is only ridiculous that you commit crime and then are curious about your being apprehended. Have you done nothing wrong? Then you do not have to worry about a warrant. Are you worrying about the price of a sex change? No, because you are not having one, exactly. You want to know. Go to your local sheriff and tell them you are here to turn yourself in. If there is a warrant, you will be taken into custody.
