Applying for or Challenging an Arrest Warrant
Legal Guidance from a Lawrenceville Attorney
In certain instances, such as when the police are called but refuse to act, civilians are entitled to seek the arrest of another civilian by way of an arrest application (also known as a warrant application). In this event, a magistrate judge will hold a hearing and, after listening to sworn testimony and evidence, may issue an arrest warrant.
Whether you are seeking assistance defending against an arrest warrant application, or are applying for someone to be arrested for the commission of a crime, a Gwinnett County arrest application lawyer can draw upon legal experience and resources in the warrant application hearing process.
The Process and What to Expect
To begin the warrant application process, one first appears in person at the magistrate's office in the county where the crime occurred and submits the application. In most cases, the court will then set the matter down for a hearing in about 10 days and send notice of the hearing to the potential arrestee by regular mail.
Because the rules of evidence and legal procedure apply just as if the case were presented at a trial (with a couple of important exceptions), it is crucial to seek the legal guidance and protection of a seasoned attorney in the defense or pursuit of a warrant at a hearing.
