Texas background check is best performed on a county level. If you are interested in searching for Newton County arrest records and warrants, here are the sources you are recommended using:
1) The sheriff office is where you can find information on arrests made in the county. They can be reached at 110 E. Court St. Newton, TX 75966, by phone at 409-379-3636.
The sheriff will also have information on Newton County warrants and wanted people. But be careful, if you suspect there is an outstanding warrant on your name, don't get near a police station since you may be incarcerated. Send someone else to check on you.
2) Copies of Newton County court records can be obtained at the offices of the County Clerk (115 Court St. Newton, TX 75966, Telephone no. 409-379-5341) and the District Clerk (110 Court Street, 2nd Floor, Newton, Texas 75966, Telephone: 409-379-3951 ). Records on misdemeanor offenses are stored at the County Clerk. Records of felony crimes will be found at the District Clerk.
