Rate of additional imprisonment in default of administrative assessment, fine or forfeiture.

1. Except as otherwise provided in subsection 2, when a person is sentenced to both fine and imprisonment, or to pay a forfeiture in addition to imprisonment, the court may, pursuant to NRS 176.064, order that the person be confined in the state prison, the city or county jail or a detention facility, whichever is designated in his sentence of imprisonment, for an additional period of 1 day for each $75 of the amount until the administrative assessment and the fine or forfeiture are satisfied or the maximum term of imprisonment prescribed by law for the offense committed has elapsed, whichever is earlier, but his eligibility for parole is governed only by his sentence of imprisonment.

2. The provisions of this section do not apply to indigent persons.
