The billionaire behind the successful Nevada ballot measure Marsy’s Law, aimed at protecting victims of crime, has yet to be charged in connection with his Las Vegas arrest last August.

Police say Henry T. Nicholas was in possession of enough drugs to warrant trafficking charges but District Attorney Steve Wolfson, who campaigned on behalf of Nicholas’ ballot question, has yet to bring any charges.  

Last week, Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Karen Bennett-Haron continued the case until March.  It’s the fourth continuance requested by the District Attorney.

Wolfson did not immediately respond to the Current’s request for comment.

  1. while it’s completely understandable and convenient to describe marsy’s law as an effort to bolster “victim’s rights,” it might also be nice to reference the arguments it’s just as much a severe curtailing of the rights of the accused.
