There are three main types of warrants in the State of California. These warrants are issued at different times and for different purposes. In order to have any type of warrant issued, police detectives must provide the judge with enough compelling evidence to prove probable cause. Probable cause is a legal standard used in the criminal justice system and the standard is met when obvious evidence is found that would lead any reasonable person to conclude that the suspect was involved in illegal activity. The proof of probable cause allows for the temporary denial of that suspect’s freedom in order to corroborate the initial evidence and determine whether they committed a crime or not.
The difficulty of warrants is that a person usually is unaware of their existence until the police show up at their doorstep. However, there are situations that may lead to the person discovering or suspecting that a warrant has been issued for their arrest. In such situations, it is imperative to contact a Santa Ana criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible in order to investigate the situation further.
