What would happen if there are spy cams unknown to the owners in their homes? I’m suspecting that there are hidden cameras in my home. People seem to know what I've been up to in my home without telling anyone and I'm told that there are hidden cameras in my house. Is there a law that... Read more »
I'm sorry for your ordeal. This is something a Nevada attorney could advise best on, but your question remains open for four weeks. You could look into the cost of investigators. To save money, you might be able to conduct some of your own investigations on the property. If you find that...Read more »
On Feb 18, 2015 I was stopped at Kohl's for allegedly shoplifting a purse worth about $50. I never heard anything more about it after that day until now. Apparently they filed a criminal complaint in my maiden name on March 30, 2015. I am supposed to go in to jail to be booked and my OR is... Read more »
The charges were filed within one year of the alleged act, so the statute of limitations has been met. So you are not passed the statute of limitations. If they issued a warrant for your arrest at that time or when you failed to show up, the warrant just remains outstanding until you respond....Read more »
Feel free to contact me at 702.448.7981. Plea agreements can be difficult to withdraw, but not impossible. There are multiple reasons for it to be set aside, even after a judgment is entered in some cases. Malcolm.
I was arrested in an underage prostitution sting, they towed the truck I drove to the meeting away and will not release it back to me. They have told me they are looking at forfeiture, is there anything I can do?
It's complicated because it can be both a civil and criminal matter. There are recent Supreme Court cases on this issue. You need to retain a lawyer immediately to figure this out, or you will lose the truck by default.
Hello, I was arrested for Assault/ Deadly Weapon, which was amended to Misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct, in 2010. It is non DV related. The conviction carries a possible maximum sentence of 6 months. Would I be banned from firearm ownership due to the initial charge of ADW, even though it was amended... Read more »
This type of conviction is not an automatic bar to prohibiting you from possessing firearms, but you should get a Nevada attorney to seal your prior criminal record. And always fully disclose if you are asked about prior arrests/convictions of certain types when you apply for a firearm permit or...Read more »
If formal charges were filed in 2009, then no. The warrant stays forever, most of the time. I've had people with warrants out for seven or eight years. They left the state, and then they apply for a special job or a professional license, so it finally comes up. So the charge has to be dealt...Read more »
You must plead not guilty, set your case for trial, and have your case tried by a jury/judge. Once you're acquitted, you will be vindicated. There are risks, however, and you could face a longer period of jail or probation if you are convicted at trial. You don't have many more options,...Read more »
You should get advice--and the services--of an attorney with the Nevada Trial Lawyers Assn in the county where the wreck happened--they give free consults. I'm assuming it's their fault--if its your fault, the fact that he wasn't licensed etc doesn't mean you collect if...Read more »
My husband was arrested last week in NM for a domestic violence charge that was filed by his ex-wife in 2012. He was unaware of the charge because it was sealed, therefore, was unable to address and resolve the issue. Nevada wants him extradited. Is there a way that a New Mexico judge can... Read more »
The courts and police are very familiar with the circumstances that User-Dealers find themselves in. They buy drugs from their dealers, sometimes they are fronted the drugs, then they sell to support their habit. The unfortunate issue is that they are still dealing drugs and they are still apart of...Read more »

Most jurisdictions in Nevada have websites where you can look up case information. Determine where your violation occurred to figure out which court you should be checking into and review their online system. If you cannot find the information there, you can always call the specific court.
It could be both, none, or just the instigator. You are allowed to use force to protect yourself during an assault or to prevent an assault, BUT you must be able to justify the force you used. So, for example, you can lay hands on a person first IF it is to protect yourself from an anticipated...Read more »
Police are aware and agree it was a phone scam, no arrest complete cooperation and now detective is telling me to pay “ restitution” or the business owner will file charges. What are my rights in this matter
Tennessee can use extradition to get you in Nevada. Under the extradition law in the U.S. Constitution and subsequent statutes, any state can hold a person who has a valid arrest warrant issued in another state. The issuing state (Tennessee) would then have 30 days to come get you. There is more...Read more »
