Text Search




Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

Upon request of a prosecuting attorney, a circuit court judge, in the case of a felony, and a magistrate judge, in the case of a misdemeanor or at the direction of the presiding judge of the circuit in the case of a felony, may issue a warrant for each defendant named in an indictment. A circuit court judge, or magistrate judge in an appropriate case, may issue a summons instead of a warrant upon the request of a prosecuting attorney. Upon like request or direction a court may issue more than one warrant or summons for the same defendant. The warrant or summons shall be delivered to a law enforcement officer or other person authorized by law to execute or serve it. If a defendant fails to appear in response to a summons, a warrant shall be issued.
