Top Notch Las Vegas Extortion Defense Lawyer

If you live in southern Nevada—Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, or Mesquite—and you or anyone you know has been charged with Extortion, you need to reach out for legal assistance to a Las Vegas extortion defense lawyer as soon as possible.

You need The Law.

The Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) has an entire chapter, NRS 205.320, dedicated to the crime of Extortion. At its most basic, anyone who tries to gain money or property by attempting to influence someone illegally may be charged with Extortion. This could include: accusing someone of a crime; injuring a person or his or her property; to publish or be part of a conspiracy to publish anything libelous; to expose someone something potentially embarrassing; or to expose any secret someone might not want released.

In our digital age, text messages and photographs may be used as elements of an attempted Extortion. I have warned people many times to be extremely careful not only of what gets written down or potentially recorded, but also what goes into emails, texts, and any other form of digital communication, including social media. Comments or photographs may be used by some who wish you harm or revenge, and could be elements in Extortion attempts.

You may also have been accused of Extortion. I can not only help someone mount a case against Extortion, I can also help you if you have been wrongly accused. We will go over the evidence and create the strongest case we can.

I cannot stress the seriousness of an Extortion charge. Extortion is a felony, brings a minimum prison term of 1 year, with the potential of a decade of your life behind bars. You may also face a fine of up to $10,000 on top of prison time, and may also very well have to repay the person against whom you committed the crime.

The NRS also contains a special section on Extortion as debt collection. If you owe money and the person wishing to collect the debt has made you feel unsafe, that falls under the NRS. Threats of physical harm or bringing damage to some of your personal property means you are the victim of Extortion. Debt Extortion is also classified as a felony and carries similar penalties to those noted above.

I have over 30 years of experience helping people prosecute and defend themselves from charges like Extortion. Whichever side of an Extortion charge you are on, I will work tirelessly for you to ensure that justice is served.  So call Douglas Crawford Law, your Las Vegas Extortion Defense Lawyer today.
