Overcoming Past Posting Charges in Las Vegas: Your Guide to a Strong Defense
Understanding Past Posting and How a Las Vegas Defense Attorney Can Help
What is Past Posting?
Imagine you’re watching a race, and just after the winner crosses the finish line, you shout out your bet for that winning horse. That wouldn’t be fair. In the gambling world, doing something like this is called “Past Posting.”
Past Posting means placing a bet after the result of the game or event is already known. It’s like trying to sneak in a winning bet when no one is looking. But here’s the thing: this is against the law in Las Vegas. It’s considered cheating, and if you’re caught, you could face serious charges.
What Happens if You're Charged?
If you’re charged with past posting in Las Vegas, it can be a scary experience. You might have to go to court, and if found guilty, you could face penalties like fines or even time in jail. But remember, being charged doesn’t mean you’re automatically guilty. Everyone has the right to defend themselves, and that’s where a defense attorney comes in.
How Can a Defense Attorney Help?
A defense attorney, like those at The Rosenblum Allen Law Firm, is a professional who helps people facing legal troubles. They understand the rules of the law, how the court works, and how to build a strong defense.
They can help in many ways:
- Investigate the Case: They’ll look at your case’s details, find out what really happened, and gather evidence to support your defense.
- Provide Legal Advice: They’ll guide you through the whole process, explain what everything means, and advise you on the best actions to take.
- Speak for You in Court: If your case goes to court, your attorney will represent you. They’ll argue on your behalf, present the evidence, and work hard to get the best outcome.

Strategies to Fight Against Past Posting Charges
Every case is unique, and a defense attorney will tailor strategies according to the specifics of your situation. Here are some common strategies an attorney might use:
- Insufficient Evidence: They might argue that the evidence against you is inadequate to prove you were past posting. The burden of proof lies with the prosecution. They have to show beyond a reasonable doubt that you were cheating.
- Mistaken Identity: In crowded casinos, it’s possible someone else was past posting, and you were mistakenly identified as the offender. Your attorney can argue this point if it applies to your case.
- Lack of Intent: You may have placed a bet without knowing the result was already decided. If this was an honest mistake, your attorney can argue that you lacked the intent to cheat.
The Role of a Defense Attorney Beyond the Courtroom
An attorney’s job isn’t just about the time spent in court. They also support you in other ways:
- Negotiations and Plea Deals: If it’s in your best interest, your attorney might negotiate with the prosecution to reduce your charges or agree on a plea deal. This could result in lesser penalties.
- Emotional Support: Facing legal charges can be stressful. A good attorney understands this and provides emotional support, reassuring you during this difficult time.
- Post-Trial Help: If you’re found guilty, your attorney can help with post-trial matters like appeals or advice on handling fines or jail time.
