Although custodial detention through the use of Union County arrest warrants is absolutely legal, the police cannot keep a person in jail for days on together. In fact, according to criminal code of the state of Illinois, the suspect has to be produced before the court at the earliest opportunity, so that he may apply for bail.

It is imperative to understand at this point that just because everybody has been granted the right to enter a plea for release through a hearing does not mean that bail will be granted for sure. In fact, it is the judiciary that decides if the person in question can be released and if he can subsequently be trusted to show up in court to stand trial.

In other words, if the sitting magistrate is convinced that the alleged offender may try to escape once released or if this individual has other arrest records from Union County to his name. This might not bode well for the person. Also, if the arrest was made under the provisions of an outstanding warrant that remained in the system for several months or years before it was executed, it is taken for granted that the suspect is a high risk criminal, and in such cases, the judge has the authority to deny bail.

Unfortunately, little can be done once the judiciary refuses to release the offender. So, as you can see, taking an active warrant from Union lightly is simply not an option. If you believe that such a provision might be used against you in a criminal matter, if would be best to put in some time to conduct a warrant search. For this, you can fill the form above and look for arrest records and warrants online or you can go to the following state agencies:
