When a Wilcox County, Georgia active warrant is issued, it means that the courts have given the police department carte blanche when it comes to the individual’s detention. Although offenders can be apprehended with arrest warrants and there are no geography barriers placed on these orders, some rules must be followed.

For one, once an arrest is effected, the accused has to be presented in court at the earliest opportunity. Also, release cannot be secured once a person is taken into custody through the use of a warrant unless the Wilcox County magistrate’s court grants him bail. In most cases, a bail hearing will favor the defendant only if he is considered a low-risk offender.

People with a chequered past who already have arrest records from Wilcox to their name will find it hard to get bail. The person in whose name a warrant is issued can be arrested from his home or workplace, or even third-party premises. Law enforcement agents have the authority to enter a property to arrest the individual in question forcibly.
