The Magistrate Report contains information released by the Magistrate Court under
public information laws. The names of minors are withheld by the court if they have
been declared "juvenile cases," otherwise they are released. Newspapers and
media under First Amendment constitutional law, can print all names and ages if
they choose, although most develop policies related to the protection of victimized
minors. The Herald generally does not print the names of individuals who have not
been served warrants, a request to the local Magistrate Court by the West Virginia
State Police. The Herald, by policy, does not print single worthless checks, but
does publish names linked to multiple worthless checks. Further questions about the
Magistrate Report will be answered if request is submitted in writing to The Hur
