About Warrant Cases in Dallas
A warrant is a court order, giving law enforcement the authority to perform acts that may normally be outside of their scope of duty. Warrants issued by U.S. courts include search warrants, arrest warrants, and execution warrants. Government entities, such as state and federal legislatures, may also issue warrants, as they have the authority to require the attendance of their members. This is referred to as a “call of the house.”
Search warrants allow law enforcement officials to enter a car, home, land, or other structure to look for evidence connected with a crime. The property to be searched must be stated in the warrant. Search warrants can specify the type of evidence to be searched for, limiting what law enforcement can confiscate. Search warrants are, typically, issued prior to criminal charges being filed on a suspect. There are time limits placed on search warrants.
Arrest warrants are issued when there is probable cause that a person committed a crime, whether a misdemeanor or felony, and weren’t within view of a police officer. When an arrest warrant is placed on you, sometimes a detective or police officer will try to convince you to turn yourself in and state your side of the story. Don’t do it. Without an experienced warrant attorney by your side, you will end up causing more trouble for yourself. If you face a situation like this, please call us! We can walk through the case together and make sure you get fair treatment and speedy resolution of your case.
Why Should I Hire a Warrant Attorney in Dallas?
When you have been accused of a crime, it may be tempting to accept representation from a public defender or choose the cheapest criminal defense attorney in the area. However, criminal defense is a highly focused area of law that is often fraught with hidden hazards for even the most seasoned attorney who does not practice in this area regularly.
Because the stakes in these cases are so high, you need an attorney who can thoroughly evaluate the criminal charges against you and both identify and take advantage of the flaws and weaknesses in the State’s evidence.
