The laws for domestic violence in Nevada
There are varying laws that address domestic violence issues. Nevada takes domestic violence very seriously. For the first two domestic violence arrests, those are considered misdemeanors but the third is considered a felony.
If there are aspects of domestic violence, for example, a deadly weapon was used or substantial bodily harm they will automatically be looking at some serious felonies. Felonies that could be non-probationable, felonies that would require prison time. And on the misdemeanors, they are looking at a substantial amount of counseling that they will have to do and fines and community services to be paid. It’s very important to take a look at each domestic violence arrest because it really becomes a witness versus witness testimony and we’ll have to look at each aspect and determine what the angles are and whether the stories are accurate or not.
