How much will I have to pay if I plead guilty or I am found guilty of a misdemeanor offense in Reno Justice Court?
Normally the amount of the fine imposed by the judge is the amount indicated as bail in the criminal complaint. If the complaint is a citation, the bail is indicated at the bottom of the citation. If the complaint is other than a citation, the bail is indicated on the last page at the end of the complaint. HOWEVER, the fine imposed by the judge may be less or more than the amount indicated in the criminal complaint. The judge may impose a fine of up to $1,000.00 for EACH offense described in the complaint. The judge may also sentence you to up to SIX (6) MONTHS in the Washoe County Detention Facility for EACH offense described in the complaint, although that does not occur in the normal case.
