Sherwood, AR asked in Criminal Law for Arkansas

Q: In the state of Arkansas, do they have to tell you, or post somewhere that you have been trespassed from their business?

My son is in jail because they issued three warrants for criminal trespassing against him. He was never told or anything was never posted telling him this. The police said they don't have to inform you of it. Then how is it fair, if you didn't know?

A: They do not have to inform you that there are arrest warrants out for an individual. Typically, most people find out about warrants when they get pulled over for a traffic violation. It is unfortunate.
