SEX CRIMES

We live in a sexual world. By and large, most relations between any mix of partners is consensual. Unfortunately, and especially as the #metoo movement has shown us, that is not always the case. Nevada’s rate for rape and sexual assault is consistently higher than the national average, perhaps because of the drug- and alcohol-fueled madness of Las Vegas’ nightlife. In the first eight months of 2016, for example, Las Vegas Metro fielded almost 800 sexual assault cases.

Clearly, this is not an easy subject to discuss. But it is a hard reality of our world. If you or someone you know has been a victim of a sex crime, you need the best representation you can get to ensure a successful resolution to your case.

You need The Law.

The Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) have an entire chapter dedicated to the subject of sex crimes. Depending upon the offense, penalties can go from moderate to life sentences. Those highest penalties go to offenses against minors and children. Sexual crimes against children are taken extremely seriously by the state of Nevada, which hopes to create an atmosphere for healthy families. We will move on cases involving children with as much speed as possible.

The NRS defines age of consent and some unusual situations that could possibly arise between partners. Even if you are married, you could still be the victim of a sexual assault by your partner, and there are specific codes for that occurrence.

If you want justice but are concerned about holding onto your anonymity, the NRS provides means for us to do that. In order to prosecute sex criminals, local authorities need victims to report incidents, cooperate in the ensuing investigation, and testify at the trial if there is one. Without that help it is often difficult to obtain a conviction. I can help you through this difficult process. I understand that being outed in the media is a concern for many victims, and can move not only to keep your name out of the public record by sealing the case and even create a pseudonym if that is what you prefer.

The trauma of a sex crime should not be added to by unnecessary stress after the event. Specific codes apply to the handling of forensic assault kits. I know this process and will stay on top of the law to keep the authorities working down to the day set by the NRS. Victims who worry about their assaulter being out before trial or judgment, I can work with courts and/or judges to impose restraining orders on violators to create safe spaces so victims do not have to worry about their movements.

If you are a sex professional, you still have rights if you are assaulted. I can help you.

And if you find yourself falsely accused of a sex crime, I can help you, as well.

Sexual crimes are very serious and incredibly stressful for the individuals involved. Your person and your rights have been violated.
