Juvenile Sex Crimes

Las Vegas Juvenile Sex Crime Lawyer

Trusted Attorneys for Minors Accused of Serious Crimes

Many people believe that a juvenile will not be tried as an adult and that an offense allegedly committed by a juvenile will not have adult consequences. For the most part, juvenile records are sealed and judges are not as harsh on juveniles. However, juvenile sex crimes may bring serious complications and consequences to the life of a young adult. If your minor child has been charged with a sex crime, it is vital that you consult with a Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer to discuss the possible consequences you could be facing.

Penalties for Juvenile Sex Offenses in Nevada

Juvenile crimes are supposed to stay in the juvenile system, but something different often happens with sex offenses. Because crimes of a sexual nature are taken so seriously in the eyes of the law, the proceedings and consequences for these offenses are more severe. At The Draskovich Law Group, we help families and their minor children understand the seriousness of a sex crime conviction, even for a juvenile.

The consequences for a juvenile sex offense can include:

  • Time in a juvenile corrections facility or jail, if tried as an adult.
  • When the child turns 18 or 21, they may be required to register as a sex offender.
  • Restitution to the victim, probation, and community service.

Commonly Asked Questions

Can a juvenile sex crime conviction in Nevada affect a minor after they become an adult?

Yes, a juvenile sex crime conviction in Nevada can have lasting effects into adulthood. One significant impact is the potential requirement for the individual to register as a sex offender once they turn 18 or 21. This registration can have profound implications on future employment, housing, and social relationships. It underscores the importance of obtaining a strong legal defense for any juvenile facing such charges.

Why is it important to act quickly if my child is charged with a sex crime in Las Vegas?

Acting quickly is vital because the consequences of a juvenile sex crime charge can be severe and long-lasting. Early intervention by a qualified Las Vegas criminal defense attorney can make a significant difference in the outcome of the case. Prompt legal representation can help protect the minor's rights, challenge evidence, and potentially mitigate the charges or penalties faced.
