In a word, no. An error concerning a "minor detail" is not likely to be something that raises a jurisdictional issue unless it somehow raises a real doubt as to whether the warrant correctly identifies you.


Such a minor error would unlikely result in a valid defense to the charge or dismissal of the charge by a Court. This type of mistake is referred to as a "scrivener's error," and is not uncommon. The most effective method of defending criminla charges is through collaboration with an experienced and knowledgeable defense lawyer.
