Q: can he/she get a warrant out on them based on accusations? without questioning the other party beforehand
can they get a warrant out on someone without facts after threatening other parties. making accusations
A: Absolutely... This happens everyday. Hire an attorney and prepare for a Preliminary Hearing.
A: Unfortunately he said/she said occurs in far too many criminal cases but the allegations of one individual is enough for the police to get a warrant for your arrest if it is enough evidence to support probable cause of the offense. If the individual is making threats to you and/or other individuals it is imperative that you provide any evidence you have of the threats or the names of the parties involved to your defense lawyer so they can provide you with the best defense possible in your case. I recommend hiring a criminal defense attorney to prepare your case for negotiations with the prosecutor to get the case resolved or to have a preliminary hearing depending on the facts and circumstances being alleged and the offer made by the prosecutor.
