Magistrate Court records are obtained under public information laws, and are published by media in most every county. Records are accessed from a public information computer, available to the general public at the Magistrate Clerk office.

The names of minors are withheld by the court if they have been declared "juvenile cases," otherwise they are on the released list. Newspapers and media under First Amendment law, can print all names and ages if they choose, although most develop policies related to the protection of victimized minors.

The names of individuals who have yet to be served warrants by authorities, could be on the public information list.

The Herald, by policy, does not print single worthless checks, but does publish names linked to multiple worthless checks.

Citations (tickets) such as, no proof of insurance/registration/operator's are often dropped or dismissed upon proof. Others are assessed fines and/or court cost

Being cited or charged is not an indication of guilt or innocence of crime. The information should not be construed or considered disparaging to the individual in any way.
