The state of Nevada takes sex crimes very seriously and imposes significant penalties and punishments on people charged and convicted of committing a sex crime. If you are convicted of committing a sex crime, you could face large fines, lengthy jail time, and probation. Sex crimes have lasting consequences, because many of them cannot be expunged even after a significant period of time and the successful completion of all court orders.
If you are required to register as a sex offender, this will never leave your record. Anyone will be able to find that you are a registered sex offender, and this will affect the types of jobs you can get and even where you can live. Being registered as a sex offender can impact your life in many negative ways, and it can be embarrassing to say the least. A professional, experienced criminal defense attorney can help you preserve your integrity and your public image.

Contrary to popular belief, there aren’t many places in the state of Nevada where prostitution is legal, and it’s not at all legal in Las Vegas. There are only a select few brothels that are licensed to trade sex for money legally. That means that everywhere else in Nevada, prostitution is illegal and subject to punishment.
Both the “John” and the prostitute can be convicted of prostitution. If you are facing prostitution charges, it is important that you retain legal counsel quickly to help you protect your rights, your freedom and your reputation.
If you are convicted of prostitution, you face fines up to $1,000 and/or up to six months in a county jail. Court records are public information, meaning that anyone can have access to them and find that you were convicted in a court of law for prostitution. The Defenders are experienced criminal lawyerss who are committed to your case, and we will do everything in our power to build a sound defense that will stand up in court.
There are many cases in which prostitution charges are filed against innocent parties. People can easily get caught up in undercover police operations, or just happened to be somewhere that was “the wrong place at the wrong time.” It’s also possible that the actions of the parties involved were misunderstood by law enforcement. There are many sound defenses to prostitution charges that can persuade the court to dismiss or reduce the charges against you.
