Sexual Assault Charges in Nevada
In Nevada, sexual assault involves the sexual penetration of a victim who
does not, or is unable to give consent. This includes victims who have
impaired judgment or are unconsciousness due to alcohol or drugs such
as Rohypnol ("roofies"). Minors are by law also unable to give
consent and penalties can increase greatly for charges involving an underage victim.
All sexual assault charges are category “A” felonies and punishments
can vary depending on a victim’s age, if bodily harm occurred, and
if the accused has previously been charged for sexual assault. In addition
to jail time, those who are convicted will be required to register in
a national database as sex offenders. If paroled, this can which can affect
where offenders are allowed to live and work.
Defending Sexual Assault Charges
There are several methods for defending against charges of sexual assault
and our firm can fight against even the most severe of accusations.
False accusations: False accusations refer to instances where allegations are completely
false, ascribe true events to an innocent individual, or describe partially
true events where key details were exaggerated or invented.
Lack of evidence: In order to secure a sexual assault conviction, a prosecutor will need
to prove that allegations occurred “beyond a reasonable doubt.”
Our firm can question the reliability of evidence to highlight any inconsistencies
existing on the side of the prosecution.
Plea bargains: In a plea bargain, the defendant pleads guilty to a specific charge in
order to avoid a more severe penalty. This strategy may be useful if the
prosecution has strong evidence that will likely lead to a conviction
of a lesser charge, such as simple battery or gross lewdness, but may
not be confident in their ability to convict a defendant of sexual assault.
