Newton County Arrest Records

Is there a possibility that you or your loved one will land in jail or get arrested? The truth is, many are arrested; however, not all of them are convicted or have charges filed against them. This happens when one is at the scene of an accident or a crime and there is probably a reason why the police should detain you or your loved one. However, this does not mean that you will be charged for the crime. It is a fact that one is presumed innocent of the crime until a trial or sentencing is handed out by the court or jury. With that said, it is important to review your arrest record or any of your loved ones’ record(s) if they have been arrested. As arrest records are considered public documents, this might affect your future job prospects. If you are not convicted of the crime, you can have those records sealed or expunged which mean that these will be destroyed and you will have a blank slate. In some instances, these records maybe sealed but are not totally expunged from the State’s crime data; should you be interested in having these removed, you can contact the attorney general or one of the arresting agency department for further instruction.

The first step to having these records sealed is to retrieve and examine them. This would ensure that you are eligible for the process before actually requesting for one and this can save a great amount of time. In Newton County arrest records are available from the Newton County Sheriff or the police department that made the arrest or has jurisdiction. You won’t be able to view the records online unlike other counties; as such, you have to contact or visit the office in person to make your request. On the other hand, you may also try the online offender information search tool available from the website of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Just fill in the information requested and click the search button to start your search. Additionally, you may also contact them if you want to verify the details or there are some errors in the record that you receive. All information provided are for public information only and should not be used in any legal actions or proceedings as it is criminal to do so.

If you or someone you know has been convicted of the charges and you want to examine the court records, visiting the court that has jurisdiction over the case will help you in your quest to obtain the said records. Simply contact the county clerk office to make your request known. You may also try out the services of commercial search providers or websites that offer public records search which is what you might want to do in the unlikely event that you have to do bulk searches.
