If you’ve been accused of a felony in Nevada, you’re facing a potential prison sentence of more than a year, possible much more. A felony conviction can deprive you of your freedom, your family, and your employment prospects.
Nevada law recognizes five categories of felonies: A through E, with Category A being the most serious. A person convicted of a Category A felony, faces the possibility of life in prison or the death penalty. Felonies may include certain drug charges, DUI, sexual assault, assault and battery with injury, first degree kidnapping, fraud, grand theft, murder, and others.
You’re entitled to the presumption of innocence until proven guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt,” and you have the right to the best available defense. When you have a sharp, experienced, and skilled attorney working to defend you, your chance of beating the charges improves dramatically.
Hire a Lawyer Who Can Focus on You
Even with constitutional safeguards in place to protect the rights of the accused, people are wrongfully convicted all too often. Your right to counsel is guaranteed by the United States Constitution, but not all counsel is equal. When you’ve been arrested on a felony charge, you need a lawyer with years of experience defending the rights of the accused. The stakes are too high to take a chance with a public defender or any lawyer who does not have a substantial track record in criminal defense.
If you can’t afford a lawyer, the court will assign you a public defender. These hard working lawyers usually do their best in a difficult situation, but they are typically burdened with such large caseloads that they can’t devote much time to any one case. You may feel you can’t afford to hire an attorney, but when you’re facing a felony charge, you really can’t afford not to.
