  • Committee looks at ways to Curb Domestic Violence Deaths Domestic violence-related deaths have increased over the last few years here in Nevada. In an effort to curb that number, several teams have been created to look into ways to reduce those deaths. These teams have made a number of recommendations, which have been forwarded to Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto. One of the recommendations made involves sentencing. The group recommends that prosecutors do not “plead down” domestic violence charges to lesser offenses. According to committee members, that often leads to dangerous conditions for the victims involved, and is not effective at deterring the perpetrator from offending in the future. Another idea being considered is the prospect of instant protective orders
