Sexual Assault

Experienced Defense Against Sex Crime Charges

Sexual assault is one of the most serious criminal charges a person can face, and these charges are aggressively prosecuted in Nevada, even when there is no physical evidence of rape.

If you have been arrested for alleged sexual assault or you believe you are under investigation, do not hesitate to start building a strong defense – and do not speak with investigators before speaking with us first.

Our lawyers have more than 65 years of combined experience in criminal defense, and we defend clients from the Las Vegas area, as well as visitors from other states and countries.

How Sexual Assault is Defined in Nevada

Nevada law defines sexual assault, commonly called rape, as sexual penetration without the victim’s consent. Prosecutors seek to prove lack of consent by showing that the alleged victim resisted the sexual act, was too young to legally consent to sex, was too impaired by drugs or alcohol to consent to sex, or was otherwise mentally or physically unable to consent.

At Christiansen Trial Lawyers, we scrutinize every aspect of the prosecution’s case, including claims that the sexual activity was not consensual. Unfortunately, without a strong criminal defense, it is possible for false allegations to lead to a conviction in a sex crime case. We fight to protect our clients from false allegations.

Possible Penalties

People accused of sexual assault face the possibility of harsh penalties, including decades in prison and required registration as a sex offender. Depending on the circumstances, a person convicted of sexual assault may lose the right to be around children.

In addition to reputation damage and other collateral consequences, having a rape conviction on your record can seriously hinder your ability to find employment.
