Searching for Madison County Warrants and Arrests Records
For those interested in performing a criminal record check and/or tracing Madison County warrants, this article will illustrate how to utilize the free, easy-to-use tools available in order to find information on offenders in your area.
Guidelines for a warrant search
In order to find Madison County warrants, you will have to seek information first-hand by visiting the Sherriff’s Office at 135 W. Irvine St., Suite B01, Richmond, KY 40475 as, unfortunately, there is no computerized data bank that presents the county’s wanted people.
Running an inquiry on Madison County arrests
Next, Madison County arrest records are easily found at the County’s Detention Center website, which allows the public to search for offenders based on name and/or booking date. Alternatively, if you wish to perform a state-wide criminal records search, use the Kentucky Online Offender Lookup (accessed here)(KOOL) to find offenders according to their name. You can also view sentencing options or the likelihood of re-incarceration.
Obtaining court records
Finding Madison County warrants and arrest records are an important first step in your background check, but it may be advisable to go further to find court documents, which sometimes provide data on an individual’s prior prosecutions and convictions.
If you’re looking for Madison County court records, navigate to the Kentucky Court of Justice website, and then in the upper left-hand corner, select the county’s name. It is important to note, however, that these court records are only for currently pending cases, and thus will not provide information on cases that resulted in a conviction.
Furthermore, the Administrative Office of the Courts provides full criminal record reports. These reports can be ordered online. This service requires a $20 fee.
