Birmingham, AL asked in Criminal Law for California

Q: How can I obtain info on a warrant in LA county California from 1996, I have the warrant number?

My father has been a federal inmate since 1996, while attempting to get his elderly home confinement processed, I was notified he has an outstanding warrant for a misdemeanor from 1996 in Los Angeles California...the BOP counselor is giving us no information except that. I have contacted the clerk's office, they can't assist without a case number, I have paid for numerous internet searches, nothing comes up with his name and dob. I live in Alabama, he is at FMC Lexington. I need to know what my options are to get this resolved...

A: probably the cleanest is to call the clerk directly (no easy task, of course). Alternatively, you could hire an attorney to go pull the records or an attorney service in Los Angeles. The latter would probably be the most cost-effective.

A: You should be able to find the case number with his name and dob. You should contact a private investigator to find it. Also, if the BOP says there is a warrant, they should have the case number and court location.

Good luck!
