Las Vegas Criminal Defense Attorney
Charged With Felony Strangulation? We Fight For You When It Matters Most

Felony Strangulation Charges

Experienced Las Vegas Domestic Violence Attorney

Most cases of domestic battery in Las Vegas are considered a misdemeanor, but there are a few circumstances in which lawmakers felt a felony was appropriate. Starting in 2009, a bill was passed that made incidents of strangulation eligible for either class C or class B felony classification. These carry significant prison sentences and crippling fines.

At Brown Law Offices, we are all too familiar with how damaging even the mere allegation of domestic violence can be. We work not only to reduce and dismiss charges against our clients, but also to assert an accurate depiction of the event in question before a jury. It is this kind of advocacy that has allowed us time and time again to navigate our clients' charges to the best possible outcome. If you have been accused, we invite you to speak with a knowledgeable and dedicated Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer at our firm.

Penalties For Instances of Strangulation

In Nevada, an instance of strangulation is roughly equivalent to the presence of a deadly weapon. Depending on whether or not there was seriously bodily harm caused to the victim, the charge is classified as either a class C or B felony.

Penalties for this offense can include:

  • Class C felony: Up to 5 years in state prison and $15,000 in fines
  • Class B felony: Up to 10 years in state prison and $10,000 in fines

In Nevada, those found guilty of domestic violence felonies are not eligible for probation. These charges are too serious to trust with just any legal counsel. If you are facing these accusations and are looking to place your interests in the very best hands, then your search is over.
