Penalties for sexual offenses in Nevada

The severity of penalties for sexual assault crimes vary depending on the age of the alleged victim and whether any injury occurred. If you have any prior convictions, a new conviction subjects you to more stringent penalties. The harshest penalty for those convicted of certain sex crimes is the lifelong requirement to register as a sex offender. To protect your innocence, we work to dismiss the charges levied against you and build your case to ensure your due process rights are protected. We represent individuals on crimes of:

  • Rape

Sex crimes explained: sex offender registry, rape, assault and harassment

Convictions of these crimes will land you a place on the sex offender registry:

  • Rape
  • Kidnapping
  • False imprisonment
  • Solicitation of a minor
  • Sodomy
  • Aggravated child molestation
  • Aggravated sexual battery

The stigma of being labeled a sex offender is lifelong. Discreet representation is necessary to protect your identity during these proceedings.

If you or someone you love was raped or sexually abused in custody or in a supervised care facility, the perpetrator can be charged with performing inappropriate acts under Nevada law.

Statutory rape occurs when sexual intercourse involves a person under 16 years old and a non-minor and the two are not married. Even if the act itself is arguably consensual, the non-minor can be charged with statutory rape.

Sexual harassment includes sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal, non-verbal or physical contact of a sexual nature. Both men and women can be charged with sexual harassment.
