Las Vegas Habitual Criminal Defense Lawyer
Nevada Revised Statute N.R.S. 207.010 On Being Charged As A Habitual Criminal
Under the Nevada Revised Statutes, a person charged with a state offense
may be designated and charged as a habitual criminal if the following
Two prior felony convictions in Nevada or any other state: The suspect may be charged with a minimum
of a Class B felony and will face a minimum mandatory sentence of five years.
Three prior felony convictions: Charged with a minimum of a Class A felony and will face a minimum mandatory
sentence of life in prison without parole, life with the possibility of
parole after 10 years or a minimum of 25 years in prison with eligibility
for parole after 10 years.
It is important to remember that it is up to the discretion of the prosecuting
attorney to decide whether to pursue a felony charge under the habitual
criminal statutes. If you have a prior conviction and are facing designation
or charges as a habitual criminal in Nevada, it is critical to
hire a defense attorney with experience working aggressively with prosecutors to eliminate the
habitual criminal designation from the charges.
