Types of Sex Crimes in Nevada

There are various types of sex crimes under Nevada law, each with its unique set of elements and penalties. Some of the most common sex crimes include:

Statutory rape in Nevada is a crime that occurs when an adult engages in sexual intercourse with someone who is under the age of 16.

It’s important to note that Nevada has an “age of consent” law which states that anyone under the age of 16 cannot legally give consent for any type of sexual activity. Therefore, even if both parties are willing participants, it is still considered statutory rape if one party is underage.

Sexual battery, also known as sexual assault, involves non-consensual sexual touching or penetration of another person.

Rape is a type of sexual assault that involves any kind of penetrative sex with a person who does not consent or is not capable of consenting.

Child pornography is the creation, possession, distribution, or viewing of sexually explicit materials involving minors.

Indecent exposure involves the intentional exposure of one’s genitals in a public setting.

Lewd and lascivious conduct refers to acts of a sexual nature that are considered offensive or indecent, such as public masturbation or engaging in sexual activities in public places.

Prostitution is the exchange of sexual services for money or other forms of compensation. While prostitution is legal in certain parts of Nevada, it is illegal within Las Vegas and Reno city limits.

The penalties for sex crimes in Nevada vary depending on the specific offense and the circumstances surrounding the case. Some of the potential penalties include:
