Las Vegas Justice Court’s New Policy Regarding Restitution Payments – Effective August 1, 2014

Effective on August 1, 2014, the Las Vegas Justice Court will no longer accept restitution payments for criminal cases. Instead, restitution payments will be accepted at the following location:

Clark County District Attorney
Victim-Witness Assistance Center
200 Lewis Avenue, 3rd Floor of the Regional Justice Center
Las Vegas, NV 89155-2212
(702) 671-2525

All restitution must be tracked by defendants or their attorneys. Also, restitution must be made payable to the victim and must be in the form of a Cashier’s Check, Money Order, or Attorney Trust Account. Restitution will not be accepted in the form of Cash or Personal Checks.

This policy change will allow for restitution payments to be processed in one centralized location so that such payments can be processed quickly and effectively. Any questions about this policy change may be directed to Court Division Administrator Louis Kozlowski at (702) 671-2890.
