The catchphrase “What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas” gives some tourists a false impression about the city. The Las Vegas criminal justice system will quickly clear up any misconceptions that you may have about drug possession, prostitution and lewd or disorderly conduct. As with the rest of the country, these are criminal offenses in Las Vegas. A conviction on any of these offenses will give an entirely new meaning to the city’s tourism slogan.
Some people’s legal problems begin after visiting one of the nightclubs on the Strip or an adult pool party. It is easy to become a suspect if others are engaged in illegal activities.
If you have a large quantity of narcotics in your possession, the police may charge you with intent to sell. You can face punishment that includes fines and possible incarceration as well as the loss of certain rights. An arrest and conviction for a felony or even some misdemeanors can seriously limit your employment opportunities. A felony conviction is difficult to explain during a job interview.
