A conviction on certain sex crime charges will require you to register as a sex offender. These include child pornography, sexual assault, open and gross lewdness, prostitution and sex trafficking. You will be notified of the requirement to register and will be expected to do so within the allotted time.
In many cases, people are not able to register in the allotted time. In others, they want to try to avoid the stigma associated with registration and simply decide not to do it. Unfortunately, failure to register as a sex offender is a felony offense in Nevada that can result in up to four years in prison and up to $5,000 in fines for a first offense. Subsequent offenses call for more severe penalties.
