Homicide Charges in Las Vegas

Find Help for Homicide Charges in Las Vegas 

Las Vegas courts will only charge individuals with homicide if the court determines that enough evidence exists to prove the charge. Before the court charges you with homicide, the prosecutor will argue to the grand jury that he or she has enough evidence to push the case forward. Once the court charges you, you need to appear in the courtroom. Some defendants receive bail, which lets them go home until the trial starts, while others wait in jail until the trial.
