Loitering is a fairly straightforward crime. The Nevada Revised Statues (NRS) 207.270 has a brief but detailed explanation of loitering. Essentially, if you have been found spending time around a school or public place where children congregate you could be charged with loitering. If you do not have a legitimate reason to be in these areas, such as supervising your own children or the children of someone else, you may be charged with the crime of loitering.
I have over 30 years of experience in this type of law and can help.
The charges you face could very well be wrongfully applied. If you are not guilty and have still been charged you need to reach out to me soonest so we can begin your defense.
If you are a parent or relative of a child who is being followed by someone you are concerned about, reaching out to me is the wisest thing you can do. We can put together a strong case and make sure you feel safe in personal and public spaces.
Loitering charges can lead to other charges. If you’re a co-parent suffering through your former partner following your child, if you’re being harassed by someone and they have drawn your child into the mix, if someone is breaking a parental visitation order, or if you’ve simply been nice and someone is taking advantage of your kindness to create an uncomfortable situation—I have seen all of these situations and more in my practice.
You need to feel safe, and the State of Nevada takes its responsibilities to its youngest citizens very seriously. Make the smart choice.
