Q: Can a magistrate judge file a warrant for me using printed fb comments my wife printed from a fake profile she saidimade
She applied for a warrant and had printed comments from fb that she said I had made during the hearing with no proofimadeit
A: If your wife filed for a private warrant application, then you should receive notice of the hearing, where you will have an opportunity to cross-examine any witnesses, view/challenge any evidence, and defend yourself. It is very important that you attend, otherwise it is likely the Court will only hear her side of the case. After all the evidence is presented, the Court will determine if there is probable cause to support a warrant for a criminal charge. I recommend speaking with an experience criminal defense attorney to potentially help you defend against her claims. Best of luck.
