An arrest warrant is not proof of guilt; however, the judge signing the warrant must first determine probable cause exists. Probable cause is the belief that the suspect in question committed the alleged crime. To determine probable cause, the judge must review the sworn affidavit that sets forth the facts related to the crime. If the judge determines the facts support probable cause, he will issue a warrant and direct law enforcement officers to apprehend and detain the suspect. In York County, arrest warrants are issued by the Magistrate Court.
