Violent Crimes & Their Consequences in Nevada
Violent crimes can include a broad range of unlawful activities which can include:
- Domestic battery
- Assault and battery
- DUI causing serious injury or death
- Armed robbery
These crimes may be charged as misdemeanors but, in very serious cases where injury or death to others has resulted, they are generally charged as felonies. The incident, extent of injury or harm to human life, prior criminal history, and other relevant facts and circumstances will determine the charges, as well as the penalties. For instance, first-degree murder is charged when the defendant is accused of the willful killing of another person deliberately and with premeditation and malice. Second-degree murder is a lesser charge covering all other types of willful killing.
In felony convictions, defendants will be facing prison sentences of more than a year up to life in prison or the death penalty. Any felony conviction may be accompanied by other penalties such as fines, restraining orders, sex offender registration, and more.
