Casino Marker Offenses in Las Vegas

What happens in Las Vegas doesn't necessarily always stay in Las Vegas. While casino markers often make gambling more convenient, they are considered a check and expected to be paid off within thirty days. If you fail to make your payment on time, the casino is then required to notify you about the debt. If, again, there is a failure to pay the state may issue an arrest warrant leaving you to face the risk of a felony.

The laws surrounding casino markers are vague and not designed to help the gambler. With an inlaid assumption of guilt, all a prosecutor will have to do is prove an intent to defraud if you knowingly gambled with insufficient funds. Due to the seriousness of this matter, it is of the utmost importance that from the first sign of trouble, you contact a skilled and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer to help you in the effort to successfully combat the charges against you.

Why Hire a Criminal Defense Lawyer?

In the complicated process and complex legalities following a criminal charge regarding casino markers, it is absolutely imperative that you secure the help of a strong criminal defense attorney to help you navigate the turbulent waters ahead. Here at the Law Office of Chip Siegel, we understand the severity of a criminal conviction. If convicted, you can face not only heavy fines, possible restitution to the casino in question, but also possible prison time. When in risk of such high stakes events, there is no room for anything but putting your best foot forward.

From the very beginning, there are steps that need to be taken to fight the charges being put against you. The longer you wait to get an attorney's help and involvement, the harder you are making it for your future to be protected. Delaying your protection is not in your best interest, as if you wait until an arrest warrant is filed, there is a chance you could face an even larger bail. With the severity of all possible outcomes, the sooner you approach a knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer, the faster we can begin to work towards your successful outcome.

If you or a loved one are facing criminal charges, contact a Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer today to begin evaluating your case and determining the best possible strategy to fight the charges against you.
