Types of Warrants
- Bench Warrant: This type of warrant gives permission and instruction for a state sheriff to arrest a suspected criminal on orders of the court, usually for failure to appear in court. The sheriff is instructed to bring the suspect to court to face the judge.
- Arrest Warrant: A police officer or prosecutor will provide a complaint to a judge of a suspected crime. The judge will issue an arrest warrant if they have evidence enough to direct suspicion of your guilt.
- Search Warrant: Search and seizure is a term often used to describe this warrant. A judge will issue this type of warrant if there is evidence sufficient to make them believe that there is more evidence wherever it is the warrant dictates it to be. Oftentimes, a criminal defense attorney can help recall search warrants because of the faulty procedures taken by officers in order to obtain them.
The feelings of impending doom that comes with having a warrant out for your arrest will not go away if you run. Quashing your warrants is our goal at the Law Offices of Bradley R. Corbett.
The 4th Amendment of the United States Constitution protects citizens from police injustice and makes the police have a warrant before certain actions. The 4th Amendment states:
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
If the police fail to follow certain measures then the evidence that they’ve collected may not be admissible in court.
