How arrest warrants work in Iowa

In almost every television crime drama you watch, arrest warrants are issued for suspects in criminal cases. Law enforcement goes before the judge to explain why they believe the court should issue an arrest warrant. It's a serious matter to have a judge issue a warrant for your arrest in real life, too.

In most cases, that means you'll be incarcerated -- with little to no access to drug treatment.
