Is there a way to find out if the State of Oregon has issued a Governor's Warrant on an individual? If yes, how?
State/Country relating to question: Oregon
Steven T Greene Esq. Qualified as an expert in Criminal Law,30 years of Criminal Defense trial work The only people that are entitled to know about active warrants are law enforcement as they are the only ones who legally can run and possess the NCIC check that tells if there are warrants pending. These things on line, will not help, the state guards warrant information as they do not want the person to flee. I have been a defense attorney for 30 years and the state will let me look at an ncic but I am not allowed to possess it. The quickest way and most likely the only way to find out if a warrant is out, is to have a local bondsmen check with the warrants department of the sheriffs office he knows well, and they will run an ncic check for the bondsmen, for any type of warrant. Also a criminal attorney can usually fax to the local sheriffs office a request with a clients name, date of birth, and social and they will respond by faxing back the information. That is what I do. Those are the best and quickest way to get the info. Sincerely, Steve ps if you do one of these steps you will get the information you need.
