Sexual assault, often called rape, is one of the most serious crimes under Nevada law NRS 200.366. The impact on those accused or charged can be life-altering, leading to severe penalties, reputational devastation, social stigma, and potential mandatory sex offender registration. 

This type of crime is commonly remembered by everyone, no matter what the verdict is. You may be found guilty in the court of public opinion before you ever have a chance to defend yourself in a court of law.

What Is Sexual Assault in Nevada?

Under Nevada law, sexual assault consists of non-consensual penetrative sex with another; it can also occur when the alleged victim is incapable of consent due to having been made unconscious by drugs or alcohol or being physically or mentally disabled. 

It is prosecuted as a Class A felony, the highest category of Nevada felony. A conviction can carry up to life in prison without or with the possibility of parole, depending on the circumstances. For example, if no substantial bodily injury occurred to the victim, parole may be possible after serving 10 years. 

A rape conviction will also result in mandatory sex offender registration for life. Failure to register in these cases is a Class D felony punishable by a one- to four-year prison sentence and up to $5,000 in fines.
