WHAT DO JUDGES CONSIDER AT BAIL HEARINGS IN NEVADA?

At Nevada bail hearings, there are four factors that a judge will consider in deciding whether to reduce bail or grant an OR:

1) The seriousness of the underlying offense in Nevada. Offenses that involve violence or corruption tend to have higher bails. The more serious the crime, the less likely the Nevada judge will reduce the bail.

2) The defendant's criminal history. Nevada judges are less likely to reduce bail if the defendant has been in trouble with the law before.

3) The probability that the defendant will return to court for future hearings in the case in Nevada. If the person is a high flight risk, the judge may not reduce bail. The Nevada judge may look at whether the defendant has lived in the community for a long time, or has a job and family there. The Nevada judge also looks at whether the defendant has ever failed to appear in court in the past.

4) Whether the defendant poses a danger to public safety. People accused of violent crimes in Nevada have a more difficult time getting bail lowered.
