When looking online at a Register of Actions for Clark County NV, what does a "Judgment of Conviction (Plea of Guilty)" mean? About 6 weeks prior to this update their was a guilty plea made and probation was given for a felony. There was another update about 3 weeks prior to the judgment of conviction (plea of guilty) that stated "Order Admitting Defendant to Probation & Fixing Terms" and I am unclear as to what that means as well.
Thank you for the clarification.
It appears that this person entered a guilty plea to a felony offense. The person was then sentenced and that sentence was suspended and the person was placed on probation. The order admitting defendant to probation is the official document the Judge must sign in order for an individual to be placed on probation. The judgment of conviction is the official document that the Judge signs to show someone has been convicted of an offense. As you can see, the official signed document can take some after the hearing before it is signed and filed with the Clerk of the Court.
A "Judgment of Conviction" is a document, filed with the court, that certifies an individual has been convicted of either a felony or a gross misdemeanor. This document becomes very important because it results in a criminal conviction entry being placed into ones scope (or criminal history). If there is an error in that document, it can haunt a defendant forever. As such, it is imperative that it is reviewed for accuracy at all times.
