Sec. § 209.4295
Payment of cost of supervision and treatment; performance of community service as contribution toward cost; issuance of judgment for unpaid costs.


A probation violator who is placed in the diversion program for supervision and, if appropriate, to receive treatment for an alcohol or other substance use disorder or for a mental illness shall pay the cost of his or her treatment and supervision to the extent of his or her financial resources.


A court shall not refuse to place a probation violator in the diversion program if the probation violator does not have the financial resources to pay any or all of the related costs.


The court may order a probation violator who is placed in the diversion program to perform a specified amount of community service upon release from the program to contribute toward the cost of his or her treatment and supervision. Any such community service must be performed for and under the supervising authority of a county, city, town or other political subdivision or agency of the State of Nevada or a charitable organization that renders service to the community or its residents.


The court may issue a judgment against a probation violator and in favor of the State for the costs of treatment and supervision which remain unpaid when the probationer is released from the diversion program but in no event may the amount of the judgment include any amount of debt which was extinguished by the successful completion of community service pursuant to subsection 3.
