Violent Crimes in Las Vegas

Violent crimes are a very serious matter in Nevada. In fact, back in 2013 the state ranked second overall in terms of violent crime rates across the entire United States. Despite the negatives, the state continues to maintain a serious stand against any form of violent crimes that can be committed within its area of jurisdiction.

Forcible Rape

Nevada defines forcible rape as the act of sexual penetration of another person or a beast against the will of the victim and with the use of force. Sexually penetrating a person without their consent are also grounds for a forcible rape charge. The severity of the charge relies on several factors, including the victim’s age, any possible injuries suffered as part of the act, and the defendant’s possible criminal records. As a rule, forcible rape is punished with:

  • Life in prison without parole, if the victim suffered injuries
  • Life in prison with parole if the victim did not suffer injuries
  • 13 years old and below: possible after 35 years
  • 14 years old and below: possible after 25 years
  • 16 years old and below: possible after 10 to 15 years
  • Repeat offenders always get life without parole

Violent Crimes Defined

Nevada Revised Statute 200.408b defines Crimes of Violence as (a) any offense that uses forces and/or threats to obtain something from someone; or (b) any felony that holds a substantial risk of the use of force against a person. Violent crimes can be committed as an independent act, like a murder, or can be used to achieve another specific objective, like robbery.
