How to Inquire about Morgan County Warrants and How to Do a Jail Inmate Search
You are about to go on a blind date; you are looking for a babysitter; you plan to hire a new employee for your business. These are just a few examples of situations in life that require a background check. In the lines that follow, we will explain how to find Morgan County warrants and how to perform an arrest records search.
Running a warrant lookup
There are practically 2 ways to look for information on Morgan County warrants:
- Go to the sheriff office (10001 W Main St, Somerville, Alabama 35670, USA, phone 256-351-4800) to inquire about wanted people that appear in their databases. You can use their online most wanted persons database found at http://18.104.22.168/MostWanted.aspx?ImageID=113394
- For a broader Alabama warrant search refer to the state’s electronic Law Enforcement Agency Community Information Center at https://app.alea.gov/Community/wfSearch.aspx?Type=25&Status=5
Performing a Morgan County jail inmate search
On the sheriff’s website, there is an online data bank that displays people recently incarcerated in the county (http://22.214.171.124/Arrests.aspx?ImageID=117400), including mugshots.
The state’s DOC operates an electronic tool for a broader AL arrest records search (http://www.doc.state.al.us/InmateSearch). You can base your inquiry on either an AIS # or an arrestee’s name.
One important note - there is a difference between Morgan County warrants and arrest records (Many people find it hard to distinguish between the two). The former indicate that an individual is wanted for questioning since he is suspected of committing a crime. The latter unfold the time that individual spent in jail.
Searching for court records
Morgan County court records can be viewed at the office of the Circuit Clerk of Court (302 Lee Street Northeast, 4th Floor, Decatur, AL 35601 ph: 256-351-4790). You will be required to fill in a FOIA request.
Court records are necessary to learn about a person’s history of convictions.
