What Are Nevada’s Penalties for Violent Crimes?

Because the court system takes violent crimes so seriously, a conviction will bring with it some of the most severe punishments. Depending on the specific charge and circumstances involved in your case, you could face anywhere from 60 days in jail to life in prison. In the case of first-degree murder conviction, your sentence could be upgraded from life imprisonment to capital punishment or the “death penalty.”

Even in the case of a misdemeanor, you may be forced to pay excessive fines, serve a jail sentence, or take court-ordered anger management classes. If you are found guilty, you will be stripped of certain rights, including your right to gun ownership. When facing a violent crime charge, there is a lot at stake; make sure you have a seasoned, proven legal advocate on your side.
