Even though they are not considered criminal records until a guilty verdict is given for a crime that was committed, they still become a part of a person’s public record. Having an active AZ warrant can also lead to life complications such as lost employment opportunities, not being able to rent a house or car, not being able to travel out of state or get on a plane, to name a few. These records can complicate a person’s life quite a bit for many reasons.
