Las Vegas Justice Court information

People who are arrested for any charge in the unincorporated area of Las Vegas -- or who are arrested for a gross misdemeanor or felony in the incorporated area of Las Vegas -- will have their initial Nevada arraignment in Las Vegas Justice Court. (People arrested for misdemeanors in the incorporated area of Las Vegas will have their entire cases handled in Las Vegas Municipal Court.)

Misdemeanor charges are litigated in their entirety in Las Vegas Justice Court, whereas felony cases may get "bound over" to the Eighth Judicial District Court if the defendant and prosecutors cannot resolve the case (such as though a Nevada plea bargain). Defendants who are convicted of crimes in Las Vegas Justice court may appeal their case to the Eighth Judicial District Court.
