Sexual Assault

NRS 200.366

Statutory Sexual Seduction law is designed to protect 14 and 15 year-old’s.  This part of the Sexual Assault law protects children 13 years old or younger.

A person is guilty of sexual assault if he or she:

Commits sexual penetration upon a child 13 years old or younger or causes a child 13 years old or younger to make a sexual penetration on himself or herself or another, or on a beast.

Especially if the perpetrator is 18 or older.

NOTE: Sexual Assault includes other acts committed as a crime against a person. This definition is relevant to acts involving a child in relation to statutory sexual seduction laws. Hence, if an adult 18 or older or a child 14 or older commits a sexual act with a child 13 years or younger, whether consensual or not, he/she can face sexual assault charges.
