Who writes a warrant? | Denver Criminal Defense Attorney

A warrant is usually drafted by a prosecutor or law enforcement official and presented to a judge.  The judge reviews the warrant for probable cause.  If the judge is satisfied that there is probable cause, it is signed.  The judge’s signature makes the warrant active for a period of time.
