    If your son is charged with lewdness with a minor he is looking at 10 years to life in prison. Since the crime is alleged to have occurred 9 years ago there might be a difference in what the law required at that time. I have handled many sex cases in Las Vegas and many times the "victim" waits a long time to disclose the abuse. Nevada allows for a lingering time period to file charges when the "victim" was told to keep the abuse secret. In addition the statute of limitations doesn't...

    First question to you is were you on parole at the time that this happened? From your information that you provided it would seem that you are not. If you are not then this Felony charge would go through the normal process. First you would receive a Court date from the jail when you were released, unless you get representation you must appear at this date and time. Second once you appear you will be told of the criminal charges against you and a preliminary hearing will be scheduled. Now...

    The first question I have for you is whether your work or anyone has found out about this? If they have found out about this what often happens is they call you in to work and talk to you about what you have been doing. First step is to not talk to them about anything that happened. You do not want to say anything that could incriminate yourself. If the police or detectives or even a company investigator comes to you to talk you should not talk to them. You may in fact lose your job by not...

    Lewdness with a minor in Nevada carries a potential Life sentence in jail. This is a very serious crime and needs to be handled by an experienced lawyer that has dealt with sex crimes before. Either way the lawyer is there to help you get the best possible outcome...If you need to go to trial to achieve that then you will have to decide whether you want to go to trial or take a negotiation.

  5. 14 year old boy touch 5 years old girl genital, how long the boy will go to jail for?

    Since the boy is 14 years old, if he is arrested, he will be sent to the Juvenile Courts. Once he is there the DA may seek to have him certified as an adult. THe key would be to do anything and everything to keep him in the Juvenile system. However, if he is certified he will be looking at a possible charge of lewdness with a minor which carries a potential sentence of 10years to life in prison. I would suspect a good attorney, depending on the facts, would be able to get this charge...

    This would be considered more than a traffic offense. It is considered to be a misdemeanor offense and should be handled accordingly.

  7. 16 year old with possession of of open container

    First if you were given a ticket for Municipal and Juvenile Court you must either appear yourself or have a representative (attorney) appear for you. The Court will issue a bench warrant if you fail to appear. It is a little strange that you would receive a ticket in municipal Court and Juvenile Court as a passenger in the car. If you were the driver it might make sense as you can be charged with driving offenses in non-juvenile jurisdictions. It is difficult to say what will happen...

    First of all in the State of Nevada there is no such thing as expungement. In Nevada there is a way for a person with a conviction to seal there record. By sealing your record you do not get rid of the conviction but all the recording agencies are required to take it off their records. There are certain instances when a sealed matter can be unsealed, especially by the gamining commission. However, once you record is sealed you can purport yourself as if you were never ever arrested. In...

    Do not be questioned by the police without an attorney being present. You have a constitutional right to remain silent and not incriminate yourself. No matter what evidence they have against you anything you say can be used against you. So if your probation officer is asking you questions that indicate another crime you need to remain silent and consult an attorney.
