Las Vegas Trespassing Attorney
Fight with a Las Vegas Criminal Defense Lawyer
When one thinks of trespassing, they usually get the image trespassing
on private or government property where there is a prominent "no
trespassing" sign displayed; however, the crime of trespassing in
Nevada can extend towards those individuals who are accused of or suspected
of prostitution, and especially on a casino's premises. For suspected
prostitutes, trespassing is one of the most frequently cited crimes in
Las Vegas casinos where law enforcement can't prove that you have
committed any other crime.
It is not uncommon for a Nevada casino to recognize and select suspected
prostitutes to be removed from the premises. How long one is banished
from the casino depends upon the casino's policy. At some casinos
you may be allowed to return the following day, whereas at others you
may be banished permanently. If a casino bans a suspected prostitute and
he or she returns at a later date, the individual may be arrested for
trespassing for returning back to a property that banned them. If you
have been charged with
prostitution, or trespassing, a
Las Vegas criminal defense attorney from the Brown Law Offices can provide you with vigorous legal representation
in your criminal matter.
Trespassing Penalties in Nevada
Under Nevada law, trespassing is a misdemeanor offense. The crime of trespassing
carries up to a $1,000 fine and/or a maximum of six months in jail. Because
trespassing is a minor crime and non-violent, it rarely involves jail
time; however, if you have a criminal record and are a repeat offender,
a Nevada judge may impose a jail sentence upon you.
Fortunately, there is room to maneuver with a trespassing charge. If the
prosecution's case is particularly weak, you may be able to get the
charges dismissed altogether and avoid a criminal conviction. Whereas,
if you are being charged with prostitution, an attorney may be able to
get your prostitution charges plead down to trespassing instead. If you
were originally charged with prostitution, it may be in your favor to
get your charges reduced to trespassing.
