One of the most important things you can do if you are worried that you or a loved one faces an arrest warrant is to find out for sure. There are several different ways to do this some online, and some offline.
The first method, and one of the most guaranteed to find out for sure, is to either visit or contact the Sheriff of Hernando County.
