When you are arrested by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department or the Nevada Highway Patrol, it is usually for an alleged violation of Nevada state law. In any such matter, you will face charges in District Court, and, if convicted, may be sentenced to time in a state prison run by the Nevada Department of Corrections or the Clark County Jail. Most crimes prosecuted in the Las Vegas area are for breaking state law.
However, the United States government also has criminal statutes pertaining to drugs, fraud, racketeering and many other crimes. If accused of violating one of these laws, you will face charges in the federal U.S. District Court of Nevada. If convicted, you may spend time in federal prison — which, despite the myth you may have heard, is not a “country club.” It is a sometimes dangerous place where you will be totally deprived of liberty.
If you face federal charges, your lawyer must be licensed in the appropriate federal court to represent you there. Michael Pariente is both licensed and experienced in the U.S. District Court of Nevada, and can fight for you if you face federal charges.
