Additional penalty: Felony committed in violation of order for protection or order to restrict conduct.

1. Except as otherwise provided in NRS 193.169, a person who commits a crime that is punishable as a felony, other than a crime that is punishable as a felony pursuant to subsection 5 of NRS 200.591, in violation of:

shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison, except as otherwise provided in this subsection, for a term equal to and in addition to the term of imprisonment prescribed by statute for that crime. If the crime committed by the person is punishable as a category A felony or category B felony, in addition to the term of imprisonment prescribed by statute for that crime, the person shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a minimum term of not less than 1 year and a maximum term of not more than 5 years. The sentence prescribed by this section runs concurrently or consecutively with the sentence prescribed by statute for the crime, as ordered by the court.

2. The court shall not grant probation to or suspend the sentence of any person convicted of attempted murder, battery which involves the use of a deadly weapon, or battery which results in substantial bodily harm if an additional term of imprisonment may be imposed for that primary offense pursuant to this section.

3. This section does not create a separate offense but provides an additional penalty for the primary offense, whose imposition is contingent upon the finding of the prescribed fact.
