Sex Crimes

If You're Arrested for Sex Crimes or Sexual Assault Charges It Doesn’t Mean You're Guilty

The stigma of being labeled a sexual offender can be a lifelong result of sexual assault or sex crimes charges. Sexual assault or “rape,” is the second most serious crime a person can commit in the State of Nevada after 1st Degree Murder. If convicted, a person can face a lifelong prison term, and if they get paroled they are required to register as a sex offender for a designated period of time. These kinds of sexual assault convictions make it difficult to gain employment and lead a normal life.

What are Sex Crimes?

Sex crimes, or sexual assault, is defined under NRS 200.366. A sexual assault occurs when a person “subjects another person to sexual penetration, or who forces another person to make a sexual penetration on himself or herself or another, or on a beast, against the will of the victim or under conditions in which the perpetrator knows or should know that the victim is mentally or physically incapable of resisting or understanding the nature of the perpetrator’s conduct.”

Sex Crimes Covers Many Kinds of Assault

Essentially, it is illegal to have sex with someone if the sexual act is performed against the victim’s will, or the perpetrator knew (or should have known) the victim lacked the capacity to say no or were unable to understand what was happening. This would apply when the victim was drunk, drugged, or passed out.

Some Common Sex Crimes Charges Include:

  • Sexual Assault/Sexual Battery/Rape
  • Statutory Sexual Seduction
  • Child Molestation/Lewdness with a Minor
