Nevada Witnesses and Evidence

Sec. § 51.295
Judgment of previous conviction.


Evidence of a final judgment, entered after trial or upon a plea of guilty or guilty but mentally ill, but not upon a plea of nolo contendere, adjudging a person guilty of a crime punishable by death or imprisonment in excess of 1 year is not inadmissible under the hearsay rule to prove any fact essential to sustain the judgment.


This section does not make admissible, when offered by the State in a criminal prosecution for purposes other than impeachment, a judgment against a person other than the accused.


The pendency of an appeal may be shown but does not affect admissibility.
