NV Rev Stat § 179.1225 (2013) What's This?

1. After an information or indictment alleging a technological crime is filed in a criminal proceeding, the prosecuting attorney may request the court to:

(a) Enter a restraining order or injunction;

(b) Require the execution of a satisfactory bond;

(c) Appoint a receiver; or

(d) Take any other necessary action,

to secure property which is subject to criminal forfeiture.

2. The court shall, after a hearing for which notice was given to any person whose rights in the property proposed for forfeiture would be affected, order such an action if the prosecuting attorney shows by a preponderance of the evidence that the action is necessary to preserve the defendant s property which is subject to criminal forfeiture.

3. If no indictment or information alleging a technological crime has been filed, the court may, after such a hearing and upon a showing of the prosecuting attorney that:

(a) There is probable cause to believe that the property for which the order is sought would be subject to criminal forfeiture; and

(b) The requested order would not result in substantial and irreparable harm or injury to the party against whom the order is to be entered that outweighs the need to secure the property for the potential criminal forfeiture,

order an action to secure the property. Such an order may not be effective for more than 90 days unless it is extended for good cause or an indictment or information alleging a technological crime is filed and the extent of the criminally forfeitable property is listed therein.
