Throughout the state of Texas, arrest warrants are almost identical. This is because all warrants must adhere to the specific limitations laid forth in the section of the Code of Criminal Procedure (found at http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/CR/htm/CR.15.htm) that deals with arrest warrants. What this means is that all arrest warrants throughout Texas must contain the name of the individual accused of committing a crime, the crime that they are accused of having committed, and the signature of the presiding judge or magistrate. In order for a judge or magistrate to grant their signature, police officials must provide reasonable proof that the suspect committed the crime.
Please note that an arrest warrant is not an admission of guilt, as all suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty. Once a Potter County TX arrest warrant is issued, officers of the peace have 48 hours to apprehend to named individual.
