Penalties for Violent Crimes in Lyon & Washoe Counties

Nevada courts take violent crimes very seriously, often more than almost any other type of crime. Being convicted of a violent crime could lead to time in jail or prison, along with huge fines, mandatory anger management classes, and other civil penalties. If you are convicted, you could lose certain rights such as being able to vote or own a firearm. Having an experienced legal advocate on your side is key to securing the best possible outcome for your case.

The exact penalties you could face depend on a number of factors, such as intent, whether there was a deadly weapon involved, the extent of harm that was caused, and status of the person who was affected by the crime.
