Arrest warrants from Huntington County can be segregated into two categories based on the priority with which their execution is treated, and we are not even including bench warrants into these classes. Active warrant is a term commonly used for freshly issued directives for arrests. Warrants are issued on the basis of police affidavits in case of misdemeanors, both petty and serious, as well as felonies.
The magistrate has to confirm that there is enough evidence against the accused to get any person to believe in his complicity in the occurrence of the criminal act. Once this is ascertained the arrest order is immediately granted. The execution of an arrest warrant means that the accused has to be taken into custody.
For this, arrests can be made by chasing the criminal all over the place or by his walking into a police station of his own volition to surrender. When the police have to put in an effort for the execution of Huntington County active warrants, they usually treat felony warrants with top priority because these carry the maximum penalty and are usually associated with gruesome crimes.
In fact, given the serious nature of the offense, felony warrants can be served at any time after their release. These orders do not go out of effect nor do they have a designated area of service. This means that an active warrant from Huntington County issued in case of a felony will remain valid all across the nation.
The Department of Corrections can offer details on all warrants that have been served and arrests made in cases that resulted in a guilty verdict. These arrest records and information on the criminal cases is made available for a good 15 years after the offender has served his sentence.
