What is an arrest warrant?
An arrest warrant serves as an authorization from the state of Texas’s legal authority to seek out and arrest the suspect so named by an arrest warrant. Although particular counties issue all warrants, they are active throughout the state of Texas, meaning that suspects can be arrested anywhere within the state.
All arrest warrants must include the suspect’s name, a description of the crimes they stand accused of having committed, and the signature of the authorizing judge or magistrate.
For a Sutton County warrant to be created, police forces must appear in court and present the evidence that they have against the suspect. Provided that the judge accepts this evidence, an arrest warrant will be issued, granting law enforcement officials 48 hours to apprehend the suspect.
