You need a criminal attorney
Douglas Crawford Law has over 30 years of experience in this kind of matter.

Nevada AB397 specifically relates to Misconduct in government. In a similar vein, the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) offer us several strategies to file on your behalf or to pursue your defense. Whatever the particular aspects of your case may be, by focusing on the proper NRS statute we can craft a defense to get you the best outcome for your offense. In our #metoo moment misconduct often means sexual harassment or something of the like. This situation is unfortunately very common, and depending upon the nature of the offense and complaint, there are many strategies we can use to limit the damage to your career and reputation.

In recent years sexual misconduct between teachers and students has been on the rise. Many of us remember the well-publicized case of John Stalmach and Bambi Dewey who had intercourse with a student. Theirs is a bit more egregious than the norm, but by no means the only example. If you are a student being harassed by a teacher, you should reach out to me as soon as possible so we can make sure your school is a safe space for you, especially if you are a minor. Even if you are a college or university student in the Nevada System of Higher Education, such as at UNLV or CSN, if you are in a situation where you feel a teacher is guilty of Professional Misconduct, reach out to me for help.

If you are a teacher who has been wrongly accused, I can help you, too. We live in an age of mistruths. If you’re innocent but are facing charges, reach out to me. The state of Nevada takes a harsh stance on false accusations, NRS 207.280: a conviction could lead to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine. 

If you’re a professional in any other area, such as an attorney, doctor, or the casino business, and you’re facing Professional Misconduct charges, the sooner you reach out to me the better. Some cases of Professional Misconduct may fall under other statutes, such as Harassment or Fraud or Conspiracy. If a professional colleague of yours has done something illegal or unethical and you have been wrongly swept up in a legal proceeding, I can help to clear your name. I can help prepare you for any boards you must go in front of to defend yourself and your record, including the Nevada Bar Association. It is not an exaggeration to say that your future is on the line.

We live in an era that, in many ways, is progressive and forward-looking. In the past women and children often had to tolerate things that we would never accept today. If you feel you’ve been wronged and have a case of Professional Misconduct, you should take advantage of my 30+ years of experience in this field and do the best thing you can to protect yourself.
