Fictitious Warrants Law and Legal Definition

Fictitious warrants are warrants purporting to have been issued by a public body, but which are neither authorized nor issued by such a body. They are fraudulent and fictitious in their inception. They are in fact fictitious and therefore void, even in the hands of innocent purchasers. [People v. Hayes, 365 Ill. 318, 321 (Ill. 1937)].
