Is there a Warrant for your Arrest?

In Franklin County there are over 100,000 outstanding warrants for the arrest of individuals who have either not shown up for a court hearing, have failed to pay fines and costs as court-ordered or who may be in violation of a condition of probation. Are you or someone you know one of those persons?

Here is how you check: outstanding warrants are public records which can be found using Franklin County Municipal Clerk Lori Tyack’s Court Access and Search Engine (CASE). Follow the instructions and fill out the search form with First Name, Last Name, Date of Birth, and any other applicable information.

PLEASE NOTE: all individuals with outstanding warrants are strongly encouraged to contact an attorney and turn themselves in.
