Las Vegas Law Enforcement is being accused of being “money hungry” when it comes to its approach to misdemeanor warrants.

Las Vegas Law Enforcement is being accused of being “money hungry” when it comes to its approach to misdemeanor warrants.

Critics claim that the collect-at-all-costs mentality places a high emphasis on traffic ticket revenue and is most likely to hurt minority defendants who fail to pay speeding tickets, while leaving more serious offenders roaming the streets. Former Las Vegas Marshal Richard Kilgore said the court rewards officers who bring in the most money and offers additional training and promotions to marshals who “negotiate court-ordered bail amounts with scofflaws in the field.” Those who do not, he said, find themselves out of luck. “Officers like myself would get denied training, get stuck in court more,” Kil­gore added. “That’s where I thought (marshals) were supposed to be. I’ve always thought that we’re not there to generate revenue, we’re there to enforce court orders and uphold the decorum of the court.” Another critic, Court Administrator Dana Hlavac, added, “I’m not going to force people to pay money they can’t pay just so we can keep running our business,” he added. Records obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal via Nevada’s public records law display that the Las Vegas Municipal Court collected nearly $130 million — 89 percent of its total revenue — from traffic violations over the past five years. The majority of that was taken in by speeding tickets or other moving violations.   Do you have a Las Vegas Traffic Ticket you would like reduced to no points, no school, no traffic school?  Call today for a Free Consultation at (702)...

Jaywalking in Las Vegas

Pedestrians continue to be killed on Las Vegas roadways as careless drivers fail to slow down or stop when un-shielded men and women are crossing the street and “in their way.” In 2014 alone, The Associated Press reported that 284 people lost their lives on Nevada roads, which is higher than the previous year, but not as dramatic as the horrid high of 423 driving-related deaths in Nevada in 2006. Officials attempt to remedy this morbid problem with a heavier police presence to ticket the drivers– but many individuals also see the pedestrians as at fault, due to the fact that in many circumstances they are jaywalking or distracted (on their cell phones talking or texting, listening to music, walking while intoxicated, etc.) A jaywalking ticket can range upwards of $200 here in Las Vegas– and many officials believe that issuing tickets to both the pedestrians and the drivers may be a way to help remedy this problem faster. Whatever becomes of the situation– do be careful when driving (or walking!) on a Las Vegas roadway. And if you or someone you know has been issued a Ticket in Las Vegas for jaywalking, or any other Traffic-related incident, contact our office to avoid further stress in this matter. In most cases, we can have your ticket reduced to No Points, No School, and No Waiting in Line at Court. Give us a call at (702) 382-2000...

“Click It or Ticket”: Strong Message for Non-Seatbelt wearers in Las Vegas, Memorial Day Weekend

“Click It or Ticket” If you aren’t in the habit of protecting your life by buckling up every time you sit down in a motor vehicle, you better form that habit fast! The death rate is rising for non-seatbelt wearing vehicle occupants, as reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In 2012 alone, over 10,000 individuals were involved in fatal crashes; the saddest part of this statistic is that their lives may have been saved if they had simply chosen to buckle up. The Nevada Highway Patrol is rightly upset with the amount of fatalities due to careless mistakes such as these, and as a result, they are once again cracking down on seatbelt laws by issuing more Las Vegas seatbelt tickets. Specifically, from May 19-June 1, the NHP will be gently reminding people to buckle up with their 2014 “Click It or Ticket” campaign. What does that mean to you? Well, you better buckle up in Las Vegas on Memorial Day Weekend because law enforcement will be amply present on the roads… and ready to write you a ticket for not obeying the law. For more information on the “Click It or Ticket” campaign, you may visit www.nhtsa.gov/ciot.

Undocumented Youths May Soon Be Able To Get Nevada Licenses

Children and teens who were brought to the United States illegally by their parents may no longer have to suffer the consequences of their parents’ choices. Up until recently, Latino youths were not allowed to apply for Nevada Driver’s Licenses due to the fact that they were ‘undocumented aliens.’ However, a new order is being set in place that will make it easier for these youths to find work, get into schools, and, of course, drive. President Obama has set into motion new federal guidelines that halts the deportation of these youths and allows them to apply for work permits. As of now, California, Georgia, and Oregon are the only states that allow these youths to apply for licenses. Mississippi and Arizona, on the other hand, have passed strict laws that prevent these individuals from becoming licensed by the state. In Nevada, those who qualify by the new federal guidelines, will not be able to become permanent legal residents, however, they will be able to lead more ‘livable’ lives here in the states. To be eligible, individuals must be under 31 years old, have come to the U.S. before their 16th birthday, have graduated or are attending school, and have been in the U.S. for five years. More drivers on the street will inevitable result in more tickets, so, if you or someone you know has had the experience of being pulled over and give a Las Vegas Speeding Ticket or Las Vegas traffic ticket call the office of Attorney Mark Coburn today for a free quote and information on how to keep your record clean.
