You need a Revenge Porn Lawyer in Las Vegas. Douglas Crawford Law can help you!

Many people want to go straight to the police. With revenge porn, legal advice is your best first bet. There are a lot of variables and complications in this type of law. I can help you prepare.

Revenge Porn

In 2015, Assembly Bill (AB) 49 made revenge porn in the state of Nevada illegal. AB 49 prohibits revenge porn if there was no consent for releasing the images, a reasonable belief existed that those images would be kept private, and if the people in the images were at least 18 years old at the time they were taken. A convicted perpetrator could receive a category D felony with 1 – 4 years in prison as well as a $5,000 fine. Victims may receive as much as $300,000 in compensation, depending upon the circumstances of the case. As good as all this sounds for victims of revenge porn, the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 200.780 does not criminalize revenge porn in certain circumstances. The law can get complex. Which is why you need to reach out to me as soon as possible..

Don’t wait. You may be embarrassed that a partner posted images that you thought were personal between the two of you. That’s natural. But it’s important you don’t delay too long if we are going to launch a case because AB 49 does have a statute of limitations.

If someone is demanding money or services or some other thing of value from you by threatening to post images of you or saying they will only pull images from the internet or social media site if you meet their demands, they are committing extortion. This is sometimes common in custody cases. This is a very serious crime and our response to this action will be forceful.

Nevada law is odd on what many would consider to be pornography. Under our laws, porn is defined “as containing the fully exposed nipple of the female breast, including through transparent clothing…or one or more persons engaged in sexual conduct.” Specifically, this leaves out the depiction of male and female genitalia. This means the law in this case is incomplete. Even so, we will be able to launch a strong case for you.

Jealousy and the end of relationships often make fools of many of us. If you’ve posted something of a former partner out of anger or spite and are facing revenge porn charges, I can help you with your defense, too. As noted above, looking at a potential felony, this is a serious charge. Good legal counsel can help mitigate the damage. It’s also worth noting that even if convicted of a revenge porn charge, you do not have to register as a sex offender.

Whichever side you might be on in a revenge porn case, you need the best protection you can get if someone has posted images of you without your consent. It’s your reputation and image on the line, as well as your future. Douglas Crawford Law can help you!
