Nevada courts have a wide range of punishments that apply to different crimes. For example, a person stopped for a DUI might receive anything from community service to jail time. A person who has a drug charge could find himself in prison for many years or walk away with only probation.
For felony convictions, the punishment can be years. This is why you need a good criminal defense lawyer. A skilled attorney can effectively negotiate with the prosecution and serve as your advocate in front of a jury during criminal cases.
