Nevada Revised Statutes Section 178.435 - Procedure in Criminal Cases

Expenses of examination and transportation are charge against county or city; recovery from estate or relative. The expenses of the examination and of the transportation of the defendant to and from the custody of the Administrator of the Division of Mental Health and Developmental Services of the Department of Human Resources or his designee are in the first instance chargeable to the county or city from which he has been sent. But the county or city may recover the money from the estate of the defendant, from a relative legally bound to care for him or from the county or city of which he is a resident.
