Potter Law in Las Vegas: Defending Against Pandering Charges:
In Las Vegas, indeed in most of Nevada, pandering is considered a criminal activity. The legal definition of pandering refers to the person who makes arrangements for others to engage in prostitution activities. Colloquially, they are usually called pimps or madames.
The Nevada pandering laws also include several types of activities that can qualify for criminal charges, including making arrangements for prostitution to happen or to either use threat of force or coercion to make a person agree to marriage or other sexual acts. Even people who are engaging in the transportation of individuals for purposes of prostitution can be charged with pandering. There are pandering laws which prohibit any form of coercion used against a spouse to get them to participate as an employee of a brothel.
The penalties for pandering can be expensive and damaging to long-term employment prospects. The classic defense for pandering charges often revolves around the lack of evidence.
