Pre-Warrant Hearings

A Pre-Warrant Hearing is where the presiding judge wants to hear from other witnesses or from the person that the warrant has been applied for. The person that the warrant has applied for has the same constitutional rights afforded to them by the Miranda Decision. That is, they have the right to remain silent, they have the right to have an attorney present to represent them, and anything they say could be used against them later in a court of law.
