Sevier County Arrest Records Vs. Criminal Records

Although they might seem similar, "arrest record" and "criminal record" represent different phases and levels of information in the criminal justice process.

An arrest record is proof that a person was taken into custody by law authorities. It does not necessarily imply that the individual has been convicted of a crime. Arrests may occur even if no charges are eventually made, or the charges are subsequently dismissed.

In contrast, a criminal record reflects a history of criminal convictions. It signifies that a person has been convicted of a crime in a court of law. This record contains details about the offenses committed, the conviction dates, the sentences imposed, and any probation or parole conditions.

Unlike a thorough criminal record, an arrest record is a simpler document kept by the law enforcement agency that arrested an individual. Arrest records are often easier to get than complete criminal records.

Unless expunged, arrest records do not automatically disappear and can be accessed as part of an individual’s criminal history. Expungement is the legal process to remove these records, and eligibility for expungement depends on the nature of the offense and the individual’s criminal history.

Sevier County Arrest Warrants

In Sevier County, Tennessee, an arrest warrant is issued when there is probable cause to believe that a person has committed a crime. This warrant authorizes law enforcement to arrest the person and bring them to court. Failure to comply with such a warrant, when able, could be considered contempt of court under TN Code § 29-9-103.

A law enforcement officer must gather corroborating evidence demonstrating probable cause to obtain an arrest warrant. This evidence is then presented to a prosecutor, who evaluates its sufficiency under the applicable legal standards. If the prosecutor determines that the evidence is sufficient to prove probable cause, they will file a complaint or affidavit with the court. This filing formally requests the issuance of an arrest warrant. The judge then reviews the evidence and, if satisfied, issues the warrant. Once issued, the warrant is entered into law enforcement databases, and officers may proceed to execute the arrest.

An arrest warrant normally includes the following information:

  • The name of the court that issued the warrant.
  • The name of the defendant.
  • Their physical description includes height, weight, hair color, eye color, and other unique features that may help identify them.
  • The criminal offense charged against the individual.
  • The official issuing date of the warrant
  • The signature of the judge issuing the warrant.
  • The bail amount
