In Denver, Adams County and across Colorado, there are two types of warrants which are commonly obtained by police – a search warrant and an arrest warrant.

Arrest Warrants in Douglas County, Colorado

When Douglas County sheriffs talk with an alleged victim in a sex crime case, the sheriffs will meet with a judge to get an arrest warrant. When an arrest is made (often at the defendant's work or home), it's often done to embarrass and humiliate the defendant. The idea behind an arrest warrant is to isolate a defendant and allow the police to gather the evidence to use in the prosecution. Arrest warrants give police the chance to obtain a confession to a sexual offense or get statements which can be used to convict you.
