Warrants in Carlton County, Minnesota, are issued for the same reasons that every police or sheriff’s department issues warrants. Missed court dates, probation violations, and police suspicions are the most common reasons for warrants. Police take the warrant to a judge for approval when they believe you have committed a crime but did not actually witness it. The police must present the judge with evidence that would bring a reasonable person to conclude that you deserve to be charged with the crime. Whether you turn yourself in or an officer arrests you, you will soon face a judge to answer for the accusation. There you have the choice to plead “guilty” and accept your punishment or “not guilty” and force the Carlton County prosecutor to prove his case.
Although the 10 years between 1999 and 2007 show a slowly rising crime rate, a spike in crime complaints in 2008 attributes the 54% jump in crime.
