A: I understand your concern and frustration regarding the warrant for your arrest. In situations like this, it's important to know that law enforcement can issue a warrant based on the statement of a witness, even if that witness is the alleged victim's friend. However, the validity of the warrant depends on the evidence and the details provided by the witness.

To address this situation, you should seek legal representation in Huger, SC, from an attorney experienced in criminal law and civil litigation. Your attorney can help you understand your rights, review the evidence against you, and build a strong defense. It's crucial to provide all relevant information and any evidence that supports your innocence.

Remember, everyone has the right to a fair legal process and to be considered innocent until proven guilty. Your attorney can help protect your rights and work towards resolving this matter in a just and equitable manner.
