Understanding Sexual Assault Laws in Nevada
In Nevada, sexual assault is also known as rape. This occurs when a person forces another person to have sex against his or her will, or when a person has sex with someone who lacks the mental or physical ability to consent or understand what is happening. Rape is a Class A felony that carries severe penalties, including lengthy prison sentences with possibility of parole, life in prison without parole, and registration as a sex offender.
A juvenile sexual assault conviction depends on the following factors:
- Age of the victim
- Injuries to the victim
- Other sexual charges in the offender’s criminal record
