Sexual assault (also known as rape) is defined by Nevada law in NRS 200.366.
It happens when a person “subjects another person to sexual penetration, or […] forces another person to make a sexual penetration on himself or herself or another, or on a beast” against the person’s will. A charge of rape can also apply if the victim is mentally or physically incapable of resisting or consenting – for example, if the victim has passed out.
Nevada also has a related crime known as “open and gross lewdness.”
Defined in NRS 201.210, this is a sexual crime that falls short of Nevada sexual assault. It can occur when one person touches another in an unwanted sexual way that cannot be categorized as sexual assault because, for example, no act of penetration takes place. Unwanted sexual groping can fall under this heading.
Nevada maintains five major laws that protect minors under the age of 18 from sexual conduct. Specifics of these cases depend a great deal on the ages of the victim and the perpetrator. Consent is typically immaterial, as minors are not considered legally able to grant consent.
Those found guilty of these and related crimes may be required to register with the Nevada Sex Offender Registry. Victims can also request a restraining order from the court to prohibit future contact with the offender.
