An arrest warrant is issued when a crime has been committed and the judge finds probable cause to believe the alleged suspect committed the crime. Probable cause is simply the belief that, based upon the facts submitted to the court, the suspect probably committed the crime alleged. However, a bench warrant is issued when a suspect fails to appear for court, fails to pay a fine or is otherwise in breach of a court order. The term bench warrant comes from the fact that the judge typically enters the warrant from the "bench." Searching for active warrants in Cullman County will mean a trip to the county Clerk of Court's office because there are no online resources for searching criminal records in Cullman County.
