Statutory rape, also known as statutory sexual seduction in Nevada, is
the illegal act of engaging in sexual conduct with a minor under 16 years

oral, anal, and vaginal penetration, are strictly prohibited under state
law and can be prosecuted as either a misdemeanor or felony offense depending
on the ages of the involved parties. If you are facing statutory rape

Penalties for Statutory Rape in Nevada
A conviction of statutory rape can carry extremely harsh penalties and
cause irreparable damage to one's reputation and future. While exact
consequences will vary depending on the circumstances surrounding a person's
arrest, all statutory rape charges can potentially result in a lengthy
prison sentence, expensive fines, and mandatory registration as a sex
offender. Sex offender registration can have a detrimental effect on a
person’s life long after they have served their sentence, as it
places considerable restrictions on where they can live and work.
Non-aggravated statutory rape is often charged as a gross misdemeanor,
while statutory rape involving a defendant over age 21 can be escalated
to a category C felony. It is also a category C felony for a teacher or
university employee to engage in a sexual conduct with a child age 16
or 17. If the student is age 14 or 15, however, these charges can increase
to a category B felony. In the most severe cases involving sexual conduct
with a child under age 14, a person can face 35 years to life imprisonment.
