Criminal Defense

All crimes in Nevada are serious and can have life changing consequences. Typically, crimes are broken down into three categories: (1) Misdemeanors; (2) Gross Misdemeanors and (3) Felonies. Regardless of the type of crime, a potential sentence could require either jail or prison time and therefore must be taken seriously and vigorously defended.

In order to obtain a conviction, a prosecutor must prove, either to a Judge or Jury , the required elements of the crime. An element is a fact that must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. In the subsequent pages, the attorneys of Gregory and Waldo will break down each of the required elements for a variety of different crimes in Nevada. Understanding the elements of each of the crimes will create a better understanding of the potential defenses that could be presented at the time of trial. Moreover, the attorneys will explain what consequences and/or sentences you could receive if convicted of a crime.

Although a primary concern for many defendants is the possibility of jail and/or prison, crimes in Nevada also carry other potential components to a sentence, including fines and/or restitution. Additionally, being a convicted felon could impact your life in other ways such as the loss of employment opportunities and constitutional rights.
