How Long Is the Average Sentence for Someone at the Henderson Detention Center?

On any given day, the Henderson Detention Center (HDC) houses around 540 people. Of these, the majority are either awaiting trial or serving sentences for Nevada misdemeanors that are one year or less. So, how long is the average sentence for someone at HDC?

Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer to that question. The length of a person’s sentence can depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of their crime and their criminal history. That said, most people at HDC are serving relatively short sentences – typically six months or less.

There are some exceptions, of course. For example, people who are convicted of a second-time misdemeanor offense will typically serve a longer sentence than those convicted of a first-time misdemeanor. And in cases where someone is awaiting trial, their stay at the center may be extended if they’re found guilty.

How To Get Out Quickly

If you or a loved one find yourself arrested at Henderson Detention Center, there are a few different things you can do. You can wait for your first court date and see if the judge will let you go. Once you have had your first court date, you can wait in jail until your trial reaches a verdict. Keep in mind that this can take up to a month. Or you can bail out, which is by far the fastest option.
