Check for arrest warrants and stay out of trouble

Can you imagine what could happen to you if you have an arrest warrant and you choose to ignore the fact? When you get stopped for a police routine auto check or for any other reason, they can and often do check for any warrants you might have out on you. If they find that you are wanted then they will arrest you on the spot. When they have you in custody they may take a DNA sample from you which could land you in serious trouble if they can match it to a crime scene.

Do you have speeding offences or unpaid fines?

You might have arrest warrants that you aren’t aware of for a number of reasons. You might have a speeding offence that you haven’t been notified of yet or you might have forgotten to pay a fine or even forgotten to turn up in court when you should have. Any of these things could trigger a warrant for your arrest being issued.

You might hear nothing about your arrest warrant for a long time depending on how serious the offence was and how motivated the police are in your area. One day they will get around to you and you will get a knock at the door early one day and be dragged off to jain.

Do you even know that you have a warrant?

If you know that you’ve done something wrong or forgot to turn up in court, or you’ve offended in some other way then you can guess that you do have an outstanding arrest warrant. But just think, what if you didn’t ever receive that speeding ticket or you didn’t know about the court appearance. Even worse, you might be a victim of identity theft and someone else has committed a crime for you. In this case you will not have any idea that there is a warrant out for you unless you make a point of checking for yourself.

Are you an identity theft victim?

Identity theft is a booming business for criminals and a horrific nightmare for you if you become a victim. Almost everyone has either had their identity compromised or knows of someone who’s had it stolen. It’s very common that the victims don’t know that someone is using their name for months or even years and then they only find out when they notice money missing out of their bank account or they receive bills for things that they didn’t order.

Now when someone steals your identity and commits a crime in your name it’s called criminal identity theft. When this happens you could end up with arrest warrants for crimes you didn’t commit. You could have multiple warrants in many different states or even different countries.

Don’t wait for the police to come for you – Find your warrants first

Here are some simple ways that you can check for active arrest warrants

  1. Ignore the possibility until the police come for you.
  2. Ask an officer of the law if you have a warrant.
  3. Ask at the courthouse.
  4. Search a public records database.

Ignore the possibility of a warrant and wait for the police

This is what most people do I suspect but do you want to be the same as everyone else and risk the possibility of an embarrassing visit from the police one day then spending at least a little time in jail.

Ask an officer of the law if you have a warrant

Asking a police officer is an efficient way of finding out if you have a warrant. Unfortunately it’s an efficient way of getting arrested too. If you do have one the officer will be obliged to arrest you. If you choose to try this then go with your bag packed just in case.

Ask at the courthouse.

If you know where your warrant was issued then asking at the appropriate courthouse is a good way to find your warrants. If you have remembered that you’ve missed a court appearance or have some unpaid fines or something then it shouldn’t be too difficult to find out where the correct records office is located. This can sometimes be a good way to locate your warrants and you are less likely to get arrested this way either.

Search a public records database.

Public records web sites keep massive databases of background information that can be found elsewhere if only you knew where to look for it. The best public records databases have been built over many years and they are being constantly updated from hundreds if not, thousands of different sources. There are billions of records available for you to access and arrest warrants are just one of the many information groups that they specialize in.

Always check your dates

It doesn’t matter who you are or how old you are, you still need to be very careful when you date someone. I’ve just been reading an article about a mature lady who paid a dating agency a lot of money to find and vet a suitable partner for her only to find that the man they fixed her up with had a string of convictions to his name.

Now you might have expected that the dating agency would have made reasonable efforts to check whether it’s members have criminal records or not. After all this wasn’t a cheap online dating site, the fees were thousands of dollars and for that I think that price you should expect a thorough service. Apparently this didn’t happen in this case.

Why pay an expensive dating agency?

You may ask yourself why anyone would want to pay so much money to an agency just to find a date. There are plenty of free dating web sites on the Internet that you can use after all. I’m guessing that they do it because they think that the agency will protect them in some way from getting a bad apple. It’s also possible that they think that the more they pay then the more protection they are going to get. Unfortunately this isn’t always the case.

So if you can’t rely on someone else to background check your dates for you then what can you do? I would suggest that wherever possible you take responsibility for checking people out yourself. There is no harm in employing an agency who should be doing this for you of course but even if you do then do make sure that you do some simple online checks yourself. This way you can be sure that you have done everything that you can to make sure that you stay safe.

Background check your date

Before you ever do anything serious with a new friend, no matter how you met them, check them out online. There are some very well established background checking web sites on the Internet that you can use very cheaply. Not only do they work like convict search engines to show you previous convictions and arrest warrants that your date might have but they can also tell you a lot more about your friend too. Possibly more than you could ever expect from a dating agency or web site.

When I first started using background checking web sites to investigate people I wanted to know the big stuff like has he got any convictions or warrants out for him? Sometimes I was interested to know whether someone had been made bankrupt or not. A pretty important point when you are considering the possibility of spending the rest of your life with someone.

Investigating people can be fun

I hadn’t been investigating people online for very long before I realized that there was so much more information that you can potentially find out about someone by using these web sites. You can check their address and phone number for a start. You can then go on to check if there are any marriage or divorce records. Did he tell you that he wasn’t married? Now you might be able to catch him out.

When you have done all that you can even find information about relatives and neighbors. It’s a whole lot of fun and can be very addictive once you get started.

Online investigations web sites gather together as much publicly available information that they can find into one enormous database. They can never be completely accurate or 100% complete of course but new records are added all the time and if you find something in there that gives you reason for concern then you should challenge your friend with it. It is always better to be safe than sorry so remember, make sure that your friend isn’t hiding his past from you. No dating without background checking first.

Check For Warrants – Even Royals Don’t Escape Arrest And Jail

Monday, June 25th, 2012

The police don’t mind who you are

Find warrants for my arrest

Lady Penelope's car

Search for active arrest warrants

Emma Parker Bowles is the niece of Camilla Parker Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall in England. Emma lives in Los Angeles and says that she loves it but she didn’t bargain on getting arrested and left in a cold and dirty jail cell overnight. An indignity that she might have avoided had it happened back in the UK because of who she is. She might have been able to avoid this happening in the US too but not because of her family connections.

So how did this happen? Well it appears that Emma had forgotten to go to court to answer a traffic violation ticket. This had resulted in a bench warrant being issued for her arrest. When she was subsequently stopped while driving her car the police discovered the warrant and arrested her. Letting her off because she had attended the royal wedding was not an option for these officers. It was simply a matter of routine. So handcuffed she was and off to jail they went.

Respect the courts at all times

As I said, back in the UK she might have escaped the indignity of an overnight stay in a police cell simply because she is related to the royal family but that doesn’t excuse the fact that she failed to turn up in court when she should. The fact is that courts on both sides of the Atlantic do not like it when someone disregards their instructions and you can expect them to use the powers that they have available when you do. If this had happened to any normal person in London then I am pretty sure that they would be facing a night in jail too and I suspect that they would be equally critical of the state of the cells in London jails.

There is no royalty in the US

Police in the US do not recognize the rich, famous or royalty. They treat everyone the same way. Some might even say that they enjoy arresting celebrities because it looks like a bigger catch. Arresting you or I would just be part of their normal day but throwing royalty into jail would make their week. It’s best then to always keep a low profile, stay out of trouble and make sure that you go to court when you are told to.

Arrest records are for life

Unfortunately poor Emma now has an arrest record which will follow her forever no matter where she goes. Any future employer, friend or partner will be able to find it whenever they want to by using online background checking tools. It will never go away. If you are a famous pop singer, rich or royal you may not care but if you are normal like most people then you should care because it will matter.

So how could she have avoided this? She could have gone to court when she was instructed to. That would have avoided the warrant being issued and she would not have then been arrested. She would no doubt have dealt with the traffic violation by paying a fine. That would have been the end of it. No warrant, no arrest so no arrest record.

Finding your warrants

One big problem here is that you don’t always know that you have an arrest warrant. Emma certainly didn’t. She had clean forgotten to go to court and had no reason to think that she might be being hunted by the police. It is possible that you never received notification of the court appearance in the first place. These things can happen. The first time most people in this situation realize that they have a warrant is when the police stop you for something unrelated and then they discover the warrant. By then it’s too late of course.

You can check yourself out online to see if there are any warrants listed for you. It’s quick and easy and while it can never be 100% reliable it might just help you to stay out of jail and avoid that arrest record.

The moment that you discover that you have a warrant you should make arrangements to hand yourself in and deal with any offence that you might be wanted for. It’s generally best to get yourself a lawyer to guide you through the correct way of doing this. Check for warrants often and stay out of jail.

Emma has written an amusing article about her experience which you can read here.

Arrest Warrant Search – What To Do When You Get Arrested

Monday, June 27th, 2011

When you get arrested – SHUT UP!

Find warrants for my arrest

Arrested in handcuffs

Search for active arrest warrants

Getting yourself arrested can come as a surprise. This is especially true when you are a good law abiding citizen and getting arrested is the last thing that you expected to happen.

Having the police come for you with an arrest warrant or even just arresting you on suspicion of doing something that you haven’t done can be a very scary experience and it happens to thousands of people every year. When it happens to you will you know what to do? Will you know how to handle the situation in a way that doesn’t incriminate you?

Most of us, and I’m guessing you too, would assume that cooperating with the police was the best thing to do. Answer all their questions as truthfully and as honestly as you can. It pains me to have to tell you that this is exactly what you should not do.

Do not say anything

When you get arrested you will be told that you don’t have to say anything if you don’t want to but if you do say something then it can be used against you in court. Read that again – “It can be used against you” – and believe me, if they can use it against you then they will.

In the UK the police are much less honest than than US cops. They fail to tell you about the danger that you put yourself in when you talk to them. In fact they encourage you to incriminate yourself by suggesting that if you don’t say anything then you won’t be able to rely on it in court. As if you have to tell them everything or you will be in big trouble. Be quite clear on this point. If you tell the police anything then it is very likely that it will be held against you when you go to court. So don’t say anything.

Get yourself a lawyer

If you are going to say anything at all to the police then make sure that your legal council is present at all times. This will help you to avoid some of the more blatant traps that the police will place for you in their questioning. It is very difficult to stop yourself from saying something that will later get you into trouble. Often you will not be aware of the intent of the questions being put to you. The interviewers are skilled at what they do and are well rehearsed in their questioning techniques.

You might not know this but when you get to court they can use any part of your statements against you and they do not have to quote the whole conversation. Quotations from your statements can and do get used out of context to make you look bad when the answers you gave to questions seemed quite safe at the time when you said them.

Don’t be stupid. When you get arrested don’t say anything then they will not have anything that they can use against you. It’s that simple.

Never touch a police officer

if you find yourself being arrested by a police officer don’t protest, don’t shout and curse and above all do not touch the officer. If you do any of these things it can get you arrested when they were not going to arrest you. It can also get you arrested on more serious charges than you might otherwise have been. These extra charges can include resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer. You do not want to add these charges to your arrest record but the officers will love it if you do. They get more points if they can arrest you on more serious charges.

Never refuse legal council

It is not uncommon for people to refuse legal council when they get arrested, even when the service is free. The right to a lawyer is often waived by innocent people who believe that they have nothing to fear from the justice system providing that they answer all the police questions truthfully and honestly. They have nothing to hide do they? Nothing could be further from the truth. Do you think that the police are interested in the truth or in finding the real criminal if you are sitting in front of them prepared to give them all the evidence that they need to convict you?

The police are interested in increasing their conviction rate. They have no incentive to ensure that they put the right people behind bars, despite anything that you might see in films or on TV.

The police are not your friends

If they police arrest you then they are not your friend. They are not on your side. They will do everything that they can to gather evidence against you that might lead to your conviction.

Police investigators are experts in getting you to say exactly what they want you to say and they want you to say something that they can use against you in court. Don’t tell them anything.

it’s your public duty to say nothing

If you talk to the police then you are potentially giving them the evidence that they can use to convict you with. If they have that evidence then they will lose any incentive that they might have had to look for the real criminal. If you talk to the police they could convict you and the real offender will remain free to commit more crimes. It is your public duty to not let this happen. Make the police do their job and find the truth instead of making it up.

Do you have any outstanding arrest warrants

You can often avoid getting yourself arrested by handing yourself in before the police come to arrest you. If you do this voluntarily and under the supervision of a lawyer then you have a much better chance of dealing with the warrant without getting arrested. You can find out if you have any active arrest warrants by consulting a public records investigations web site. It isn’t expensive and it could save you from getting a nasty surprise.

Arrest Warrant Checks – Why Are Our Juries Being Used As A Substitute For Evidence?

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

How do I get convicted for something I haven’t done

Find warrants for my arrest

Inside a courtroom

Search for active arrest warrants

Recent technology advances in the field of forensic science have brought about a rash of convictions based on detecting suspects involved cases that have been cold for years. Most notable of these advances are in the field of DNA profiling where your DNA can be matched to that found at scenes of crimes that were committed decades ago. This, together with the alarming passion with which police officers now collect peoples DNA for entry into national computer systems, has resulted in many recent cold cases of murder and rape being tried before a judge and convictions obtained.

If you get arrested in the UK and in many parts of the USA too, then you will almost certainly have to submit to your DNA being taken and entered onto the database. You don’t have to be charged with anything for this to happen and it doesn’t matter what you were arrested for either. Once your DNA profile is on the database it will be searched for matches and if one turns up then you are in a lot of trouble whether you committed a crime or not. Remember that the police only need “probable cause” to lawfully arrest you and that can mean that they don’t have much more than suspicion.

Throw the rapists and murderers into prison

I would like to think that all of the convictions obtained in this way have been sound and we can all sit back and look on this as a job well done with more criminals behind bars. There is one recent case however, involving a friend of mine, that has given me cause to doubt this. It has in fact terrified me because it demonstrates just how easy it is for any one of us to get convicted and sent to prison for something that you did not do.

I’m sure that there are now many more bad people in prison as a result of these new technologies. You often hear of cases where the defendant had a string of prior offenses similar to the one they are currently accused of or where eye witnesses remember the person. There are also cases where factual evidence and motive lead you to believe that the guilty verdict is the right one.

But what if there is no evidence?

What if the only evidence in say a rape case, is a DNA match? At best, a DNA match proves that sex took place within 72 hours of the sample being taken. What if the defendant has no prior convictions for any offence and convincingly argues that he has no memory of committing an offence?

What if the police have already destroyed all the other evidence, including the alleged victim’s clothing and hair from bushes. Destroyed to save space in the evidence store would you believe?

What if the defendant has never been identified as the attacker by anyone and all the prosecution witnesses contradict the alleged victim on most of her account of the event? The alleged victim was an alcoholic and a drug addict. Not the most reliable of witnesses.

What would you do if you were the prosecution?

If you were responsible for the prosecution case in this instance what would you do? Would you accept that there is no evidence to suggest that the defendant is guilty of any crime? Indeed there was no real evidence that a crime was committed at all by anyone so would you drop the case or would you take it to court and expect an unqualified jury to decide? Decide on what You might ask. If there is no evidence then what is the jury supposed to do?

This could happen to you

This story might seem absurd and unbelievable to you as it did to me but this is exactly what happened to a friend of mine. The same thing could happen to you or I just as easily. He has no memory of the event which happened 16 years earlier and is quite sure that he would have remembered committing such a crime.

All 12 jurors in this case decided that he was guilty of the crime beyond all reasonable doubt. How can that happen when there is no evidence? Perhaps they assumed that if there was absolutely no proof whatsoever and the police still believe that he did it then they must know something that the jury could not be told for some legal reason. Just a theory, what do you think?

How do I avoid giving up my DNA?

My friend was forced to give up his DNA when he was arrested for a misdemeanor where no charges were brought. Regularly checking for arrest warrants is one way that you can reduce your chances of getting arrested and having your DNA sampled. You can do this inexpensively using a public records web site. If you have an outstanding arrest warrant and you give yourself in voluntarily then you are much less likely to be arrested and find yourself on the DNA register.

How to Check If You Have An Active Arrest Warrant

Arresting people is what police officers are there for

Find arrest warrants now

Police badge

Search for active arrest warrants

It may not be politically correct for any police force to say that their prime objective is to make as many arrests as possible but what do you think motivates the cops on the street? I’m sure that they get good reports for making arrests and they know how to check if you have an active arrest warrant. Think about that for a moment and you will see that asking a police officer to do a check for you is not a good idea. There is a much better way to check for your warrants.

Knowing how your police department works is very important. It exists to investigate and detect crime and then to arrest the perpetrators of those crimes. It makes sense to measure their performance to make sure that they are doing the best job for you and reward them appropriately for doing it. The problem with this is that it creates an eagerness to arrest people that fosters a competitive attitude towards arrests. Police officers could become more interested in maximizing arrests than detecting and preventing real crime.

How do you measure the performance of a police officer?

I’m guessing that there are many things that police forces use to asses the performance of their officers. This could include recording the accuracy and speed of their paperwork, their proficiency with weapons and a host of other things. It would be very naive to imagine that the number of arrests made by by an officer is not included in the assessment.

Measuring arrest numbers is easy

It’s almost too easy to to count the number of arrests made and I’m sure that they make it more interesting by awarding more or less weight depending on the severity of the crime. Was it a misdemeanor or a felony? Busting someone for a felony is sure to prompt a celebration don’t you think? It must be worth many points on the arrest tally sheet.

Police officers can check if you have an arrest warrant

So cops are measured by how many arrest that they make. They can also check to see if you have a warrant so what do you think is the first thing they do when they stop you for any reason? They will check to see if you are wanted of course.

Problem solved you might think. All you have to do to check for arrest warrants is ask a police officer. But there is a catch. A police officer will be only too pleased to do an arrest warrant check on you and they will do it for free too. The problem is that they will arrest you on the spot if they fid that you have a warrant.

Remember the game that the cops play involves arresting as many people as possible in as short a time as possible. Finding out that you are wanted represents an easy score for them.

You do not want to get arrested

Believe me when I tell you that the last thing you want to happen is to get yourself arrested. This aplies whether you have committed an offence or not. Getting arrested means spending some time in jail and the possible expense of bail. It also means that you will have an arrest record that will never go away. For many employers, having been arrested is reason enough not to give you a job. It won’t count for much that you were never convicted or even if you were never charged with anything. The fact that you show up on police records is enough to condemn you to a life of low paid work.

So if you have offended and you want to put things right, check public records first to see if you have a warrant and get it sorted before the police have a chance to arrest you. Get yourself a lawyer to guide you safely through the process.

If you have not committed any offence, or you don’t think that you have, then it’s still a good idea to check yourself out regularly just in case you have collected a warrant for something that you know nothing about. Victims of identity theft have this problem all the time. Check to see if you have an active arrest warrant using public records right now. You might regret it if you don’t.

How to Check If You Have An Active Arrest Warrant

Arrest Records Public | Free Availability Of records

Arrest records are public records

Find arrest warrants now

Public records building

Search for arrest warrants

You might not know this but arrest records are public and free to access. I say “free” but you might find that you need to pay some kind of administration fee depending on how you obtain the records information. The free part is more to do with the lack of restrictions imposed upon you when obtaining or using the public information. You generally need to spend something whether it is your time or your money. You can do it in a fast and efficient manner very cheaply though.

Criminal records are public records

Most criminal records are public and free too. This makes it relatively easy now to do a criminal background check on someone. It’s also getting easier and easier by the day as more and more public records become available online. You can already access more information than you could ever imagine about almost anyone you can think of. This has been made possible by the recent development of public records databases on the Internet.

If you spend long enough online you should be able to find sources of free public arrest records and warrants. Go to your favorite Internet search engine and type in “arrest records” followed by the state that you are interested in. It can be a time consuming job finding all the relavent web pages from every county in the state but you can end up with some good resources if you stick at it.

Arrest records – public background checks

Free public arrest records are increasingly being used by individuals and employers to check out the backgrounds of friends, neighbors, job applicants, boyfriends, girlfriends and other people that you come in contact with. It can become very time consuming however if you try to do all of this for free without spending any money at all. If you want to do a lot of checking up on people then the free methods just aren’t very practical.

Please remember that arrest records are not convictions. You can get arrested for all sorts of silly little breaches of the law and bang you have a record. This does not necessarily mean that you are a bad person or even that you are guilty of what you were arrested for.

To help speed up the process and allow you to look up free arrest records, public criminal records and much more on anyone you need to, you can safely use a public records investigation web site. They do charge a small fee but you can get a lot of information for your money.

Searching public arrest records and warrants can be fast and efficient

A good investigations web site will give you unlimited access to as many criminal records, warrants and arrest records, public and free to access. You will also be able to search for other information too. Bankruptcies, property records, addresses, neighbors and all sorts of information you might want to know about.

Using commercial public records web sites can be very fast and very efficient. If you subscribe to an unlimited service then you can do literally hundreds of searches in a single evening. This makes searching for arrest warrants, public and free as close to reality as you can get.

Check Warrants For Arrest Hold On To Your DNA

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Find arrest warrants now

Girl in prison

Search for active arrest warrants

There seems to be a growing culture amongst law enforcement agencies to collect DNA from everyone that they can. This is being made possible in more and more areas by laws which allow DNA to be taken and stored from anyone who gets arrested. If you think that you might have an active arrest warrant somewhere then you would be wise to check and if you have one get it dealt with as soon as you can. If you don’t get arrested then you won’t be forced to donate your DNA.

“Why is this such a big deal?” I hear you ask. Isn’t it a good thing that DNA information is available to the police so that they can identify more suspects in crimes? On the face of it you would be right. Using DNA matching techniques investigators are able to eliminate suspects where the DNA does not match. They can also search the ever growing database of DNA samples to find suspects that would otherwise go undetected even when decades have passed since the crime was committed.

When used responsibly by professional investigators, DNA matching can be a very powerful ally to law enforcement but can you trust this kind of technological power to the people who run our justice systems? A recent case in the UK would suggest that you can not. A man was convicted for a rape 16 years before when the only real evidence presented was a DNA match. While the DNA made the defendant a suspect it certainly did not prove guilt and yet the jury saw fit to convict.

So my advice is to go out of your way to avoid getting yourself arrested. One way to help you do this and keep your DNA to yourself is to regularly check your warrants for arrest and deal with them before the police get around to acting on it.

How Long Does An Arrest Warrant Last For?

Monday, January 17th, 2011

You can’t outrun an arrest warrant

Find arrest warrants now

Female lawyer

Search for active arrest warrants

Did you think that you had gotten away with that warrant for your arrest because it was issued a long time ago? Perhaps it was even in a different state. If you haven’t been arrested already then perhaps the warrant has been forgotten about – Wrong. How long does an arrest warrant last for? – A lot longer than you might imagine.

Arrest warrants are for life

Warrants do not expire and they do not have a time limit. An arrest warrant will remain active until you get arrested or you give yourself up. It’s as simple as that and if you haven’t been arrested yet then it’s just luck. Give it time and it will most likely catch up with you.

If you have a warrant for a serious felony crime then you can expect to be caught quickly unless you are actively avoiding capture. It’s more likely though, that you have a warrant for a misdemeanor offence like failing to attend court or not paying a fine. If this is the case then it’s unlikely that the police will be actively pursuing you.

Warrants don’t go away by themselves

Just because you have a warrant for a minor offence from years ago and you haven’t been arrested yet, it doesn’t mean that you won’t be. Remember a warrant will last forever unless you do something about it. It will not go away by itself.

One day you will get stopped for some routine traffic offence and the police will take the opportunity to check to see if you have any arrest warrants. You are already in front of them so if they can add you to their arrest statistics for the day then they will. They can do a routine warrant check in no time at all with their onboard computers and if they find your warrant, even if it’s from years ago, they will arrest you and take you to jail.

Most police officers are assessed in some part, by how many arrests they carry out so they have a real incentive to find something to arrest you on. You would be an easy target.

Dealing with an arrest warrant

I’m guessing that if you are reading this article then it’s because you either know that you have a warrant for arrest or you think you have one. You are also concerned that you should be doing something about it before your luck runs out and you finally get arrested.

Once you have been arrested you will be thrown into jail to be released only after bail has been set. That’s when it starts to get expensive so if you can, it’s best to avoid the getting arrested part.

You need to get yourself a lawyer to guide you through the right way of handing yourself in and dealing with whatever it was that got you the warrant in the first place.

Find out what the warrant is about

Before you hand yourself in you need to find out what the warrant is for and even whether one exists at all for that matter. You can get details of the warrant from the courthouse where it was issued. Just give them a call and ask. If you can’t remember where it was issued then you can use an online public records database. Arrest warrants are public records so there is a good chance that you will find your’s online.

Forever is how long an arrest warrant lasts.

The jury system is supposed to be the best form of justice that you can get. By getting 12 ordinary people to determine guilty or not guilty we protect ourselves from possible corruption within the system itself, or do we? A man was recently found guilty of a rape that happened 16 years ago, by a jury in the UK that sent him to prison for 6 years. The only problem with this is that in my opinion, there was no proof that the defendant actually committed the offence. In fact there was no evidence to prove that he was even there when the incident happened or that if he was that he attacked the woman. There was no evidence to prove that an attack even took place. So how did a jury determine that he was guilty beyond all reasonable doubt?

“How could this happen?” I hear you say. You might rightly think that the innocent have nothing to fear from the law and that it could never happen to you? Well this case shows that this just isn’t true, it could happen to you which is why it is so important that you avoid getting arrested. Checking for arrest warrants regularly is one way of reducing your risk of becoming another mistake of justice.

If you are a man you should be afraid – be very afraid

Anyone who gets arrested in the UK now must submit to the police taking a sample of their DNA for entering onto the national DNA database. Many people believe that there is now a policy of arresting people for the sole reason of collecting DNA for the database. This policy can be seen in action when people get arrested for offenses that would only have warranted a telling off from a police officer 20 years ago.

This policy of arrest to collect DNA is spreading fast in the US and it looks like it will overtake the UK database very soon. On the face of it you have nothing to worry about unless you have committed a crime but this is far from reality I’m afraid.

Does a DNA match mean that you are guilty? It seems that it does

The UK case that I am referring to was an alleged rape of a woman which happened 16 years before the defendant was arrested and his DNA taken. The DNA sample was matched to the that found on the alleged victim when she reported the incident to the police 16 years earlier.

This makes the defendant a suspect and he accepted that he must have had a one night stand with the alleged victim but he has no memory of either the event nor the woman. He was very insistent that he could not have committed this crime because he knows that he has never raped anyone. He would have remembered the event had he done so. I know that I would have.

Experts testified that the DNA sample could have been deposited at any time up to 3 days before the alleged incident. No evidence to place the defendant at the scene was produced and the defendant was never identified as the attacker. There wasn’t even any proof that there was any attack on the woman at all.

These are the only facts that are known in the case and the jury were instructed that they must find the defendant innocent if they were not absolutely certain that he committed the offence. The jury were also told that the alleged victim had claimed to be the victim of rape on 2 previous occasions, she had a drug habit and none of the prosecution witnesses could agree on vital facts.

The defendant had never before been in trouble with the police for any offence and was of good standing in the community with a partner and 2 adorable small children.

Can you trust a jury?

Why did all 12 members of the jury decide that he was guilty beyond all reasonable doubt? In my opinion they did not base their decision on the facts which was their job. Instead they voted with emotion after hearing the prosecution make up a fictitious story about how the defendant committed the offence. This story had no basis in fact at all.

Don’t get arrested on a warrant – Keep your DNA to yourself

Don’t believe the lie that the innocent have nothing to fear from the law. You and I have a lot to fear. In fact I now fear the justice system more than I fear the criminals. My advice to you is to avoid getting arrested. If they don’t collect your DNA then they can’t match you to a cold case with such ease.

Avoid the police whenever you can. Don’t let them even see you. If they can’t see you then they can’t arrest you. Check for warrants for arrest regularly and deal with them as quickly as you can. This will avoid getting arrested unexpectedly on a routine traffic stop or when the police call at your home with the warrant. You can check for arrest warrants using a public records investigations web site. The peace of mind this can give you is worth far more than the small fee that they will charge you.
