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 Herald.
