Because the laws that govern arrest warrants are created at the state level, they function almost the same way, no matter what county you are in. Further, because any arrest warrant, including a Sabine County arrest warrant, is issued by the state of Texas’s authority, they can be executed in any county in the state. For better or worse, this suggests that those persons with an active Sabine County TX warrant can be arrested anywhere in the state, regardless of county.
All arrest warrants in Texas must include the name of the individual accused, the crime they are believed to have committed, and the presiding judges’ signature. Judges will not sign an arrest warrant unless there is compelling evidence. However, it is important to note that an arrest warrant is not an indication of guilt, as only a criminal trial can establish that. Once signed by a judge, police have 48 hours with which to apprehend the suspect.
If you’re concerned that you have an active Sabine County TX warrant, the best thing you can do is appear at the Sabine County office of the sheriff. You can look for this office at PO Box 848, in Hemphill, TX 75948. Please understand that if there is an outstanding warrant out for you, you may be arrested, so it is best to consult a defense attorney.
