  •   Whether you've been arrested under NRS 200.280 for mayhem or for violating NRS 200.380 for robbery, you're probably wondering what to do next. You're in police custody and you can't help but think about how to get back home as quickly as possible. In Nevada most people are able to get out of police custody by posting bail. The courts require the posting of bail as an assurance that the defendant will actually show up for their date in court. Most people in police custody are eligible for posting bail and getting out of jail until their trial date. However, there are exceptions to this. NRS 178.484 spells out the conditions under which a person may be granted or

  • Although there are several groups that oppose the death penalty, one of them has more reasons for doing so than any other. That group is called Witness to Innocence, and it is comprised solely of individuals who have been exonerated from death row in the United States. In all, there are more than 140 exonerees throughout the country, 50 of which have joined the group. Based in Philadelphia, PA, its members are from several states including Nebraska, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas and Louisiana. Some of these individuals spent more than 20 years on death row before being released. This organization has released some startling numbers concerning the death penalty. They claim that one innocent person has been exonerated for every nine

  • O.J. Simpson could Receive new Trial In 2007, O.J. Simpson received a sentence of nine to 33 years in prison for his role in a 2007 robbery in Las Vegas. Simpson was attempting to recover sports memorabilia he claims was stolen from him after his acquittal on double murder charges. At the time of his sentencing, Simpson was 60 years old, and it was anticipated he would spend the rest of his natural life in prison. That could change, as attorneys for the former NFL star have been somewhat successful at an appeals attempt. On October 19th, Clark County, Nevada judge Linda Bell agreed to consider 18 of 22 issues raised by appellate attorneys for Simpson. Among some of the
