Sexual Molestation

Victim of Sexual Molestation?

Understand your Rights – Call (775) 573-0229

Nevada has laws that protect victims of sexual molestation. Unfortunately, sexual molestation cases often arise in the home, in schools and colleges, at churches, and in other environments in which one should be safe from such conduct. Sexual abuse takes on many forms including: incest, lewdness with a child, sexual assault on a child, sado-masochistic abuse, statutory seduction, and open and gross lewdness.

Nevada recognizes that many individuals are molested when they are very young. In recent years, a great deal of research has been done on the issue of repressed memory. Children and young adults may not remember being molested until years after an event occurs.

For this reason, Nevada law allows young victims of sexual abuse many years, under certain circumstances, to bring claims. A victim who was sexually abused while under the age of 18 can bring a claim against the perpetrator within 10 years of turning 18 or within 10 years of discovering that his or her injury was caused by sexual abuse, whichever occurs later. (NRS 11.215)
