Simple Assault

Simple AssaultA Simple Assault is not a legal term in Las Vegas, Nevada, but is a term of art used to describe a Misdemeanor Assault offense.  For example, if two strangers were at a casino and got into an argument and one swung his fist at the other, that would be considered a Misdemeanor “Simple” Assault, and a conviction would subject the offender to a fine up to $1,000 and up to 6 months of jail.  If you are accused of committing an Assault on “protected person” such as a police officer, a health care provider, school teacher or a taxi cab driver, then you would be facing a Felony Assault charge.
