Pahrump is perhaps best known as the closest town to Las Vegas where licensed brothel prostitution in Nevada is allowed. It is also legal to purchase non-Safe-n-Sane fireworks in Nevada there in the week prior to July Fourth.
The largest town in Nye County, Pahrump currently has about 40,000 residents. Its location by Blue Diamond Road keeps its police busy tracking down alleged violators of Nevada DUI law and Nevada traffic ticket law. Our Nye County criminal defense lawyers provide Pahrump Court and Jail information below:
Pahrump Justice Court
Pahrump is an unincorporated town and therefore has no municipal court and only a justice court. The Pahrump Justice Court is located at 1520 E. Basin Avenue, Pahrump, NV 89060.
Pahrump Justice Court hears all cases involving crimes that allegedly occurred within city limits. The court hears every stage of Nevada misdemeanor cases up through the final resolution. But Nevada felony cases which are not resolved by the Nevada preliminary hearing stage are transferred ("bound over") to Nye County District Court, which is located in the same building as Justice Court.
