Felony in Nevada
What is a Felony
The Nevada Revised Statutes make detailed categories of felonies. Depending upon the crime, the punishment can go from moderate to severe:
Categories and punishment of felonies.
1. Except when a person is convicted of a category A felonies, and except as otherwise provided by specific statute, a person convicted of a felony shall be sentenced to a minimum term and a maximum term of imprisonment which must be within the limits prescribed by the applicable statute, unless the statute in force at the time of commission of the felony prescribed a different penalty. The minimum term of imprisonment that may be imposed must not exceed 40 percent of the maximum term imposed.
A category A felony is the most serious: if convicted, a sentence of death or life imprisonment without the possibility of parole may be given.
A category B felony is one for which the minimum term of imprisonment in the state prison will be not less than 1 year and not more than 20 years.
A category C felony is one for which a court will sentence the convicted person to a term in the state prison for not less than 1 year and no more than 5 years. The court may also impose a fine of not more than $10,000, unless a specific statute requires more.
A category D felony is one for which a court will sentence the convicted person to not less than 1 year and no more than 4 years. The court may also impose a fine of not more than $5,000, unless a specific statute requires more.
A category E felony is one for which a court will sentence the convicted person to not less than 1 year and not more than 4 years. It is possible in a category E conviction that the court could suspend the execution of the sentence and grant probation to the person if the court feels it’s appropriate. Probation might include a term in the county jail of not more than 1 year. The court could also impose a fine of not more than $5,000.
