    I was just informed that in order to issue a warrant the person needs an address. What if a hobo killed a bunch of babies and didn't get arrested on the scene? I was told by an official at the court house they would just let the hobo go. How does everyone feel about this?

      What sort of warrant?

        I tried to do a warrant for assault and battery... so yeah...

    That it is probably untrue.

    ...

    It took me about 30s to find an arrest warrant does not require an address.

    I was assuming an arrest warrant, given the example.

      I wasn't, I was concentrating on the "what if".  It seems logical that a person without an address would be a pointless recipient of a distraint warrant!

    I'm going to guess that we're talking about a bench warrant....maybe for nonpayment of child support or some such.  To my knowledge, though, a bench warrant can be issued whether you have a current address or not.  They're just difficult to enforce unless a person is picked up by police.

      The lady at the clerks office told me that they could not issue a warrant for anything (civil or criminal) unless they had an address.... I was pretty stunned. I was just wondering if anyone else had encountered this...

    The example given is of a murderer.

      But not related to the original statement.

      "I was just informed blah blah blah"  "what if blah blah blah"

      ie, I very much doubt that the court official was actually talking about letting a murderer go and therefore I asked what sort of warrant.

        Ah yes, I can see that might be the source of the misunderstanding.

        I used the hobo murdering things as an example for the clerk and she gave the answer stated.... I just used that example as an extreme situation to sort of get the point across to the clerk.

      True - but the average person doesn't call the court to issue an arrest warrant for murder.  Heaven knows I could be wrong.  But that happens so rarely. wink
