Casino Marker Crimes

Trusted Las Vegas Defense Attorney

People are always shocked to learn that in Nevada you will be charged with a felony if you fail to timely repay a casino marker. The Nevada felony theft statute includes a provision that if you fail to repay a marker in the ordinary course of business then it is evidence of intent to defraud the casino.

So, what should you do if you are contacted by the casino? Initially, you can get a Las Vegas criminal defense attorney involved to represent you in negotiating a payment plan or debt payoff. You should not ignore the letters from the casino. More importantly, if you receive a demand letter from the District Attorney, do not ignore this. Failure to communicate could result in an arrest warrant. The longer you wait, the more difficult it is to stop the criminal process.

Also, once the arrest warrant is filed, if you are picked up on an arrest warrant, the District Attorney will extradite. Again, the further along in the proceedings you wait to involve an attorney, the more difficult it will be to set aside a warrant. Often if you are in custody, the District Attorney will seek a larger cash bail for your release.
