legal_libraryAn Assault charge in Las Vegas, Nevada can range from a Misdemeanor to a Felony depending on the circumstances of the offense. Nevada Revised Statute “NRS” 200.471 defines Assault as “unlawfully attempting to use physical force against another” or “intentionally placing another person in reasonable apprehension of immediate bodily harm. To be clear, in Las Vegas an Assault is not a Battery offense, you do not have to touch someone to be charged with assault, merely the act of attempting to use force against them, such as swinging your fist and missing or pointing a gun at them is considered an Assault. Las Vegas Criminal Defense Attorney Michael A. Troiano, will effectively defend you on an Assault charge, whether it be a Misdemeanor Simple” Assault or a felony Assault charge such as Assault With a Deadly Weapon and Sexual Assault.
