Serious Charges in Las Vegas – Date Rape

Date Rape or Sexual Assault Pays a High Price in Las Vegas

Date Rape (NRS 200.366) refers to non-consensual sex between two people who knew each other socially. The law states that sexual penetration is against the law if it’s not consensual. If the victim is saying “No” or physically resisting the perpetrator, this is the sign to stop. A typical example of this is when two people are on a date, and are “making out.” The female does not want to go any further, but the male insists or he has given her a drug, such as Rohypnol, to knock her unconscious and then assaults her.Sexual assault or rape can also be referred to as sexual battery but is also NRS 200.366. It is the same charge except that the sexual assault is between strangers. This crime is deplorable, and Las Vegas wants to spread the message that it will not be accepted in this city, so the penalties can be harsh.
