Nevada’s Sex Trafficking Laws

We are very proud of Nevada’s sex trafficking statute and consider it ideal.

Nevada’s New Sex Trafficking Statute Under NRS 201.300(2)

That statute expressly provides that the consent of the victim of the sex trafficking to an act of prostitution is not a defense to a prosecution. Under NRS 201.300(2), a person is guilty of sex trafficking if the following elements are proven beyond all reasonable doubt:

A person:

(a) Is guilty of sex trafficking if the person:

Induces, causes, recruits, harbors, transports, provides,obtains or maintains a child to engage in prostitution, or to enter any place within this State in which prostitution is practiced, encouraged or allowed for the purpose of sexual conduct or prostitution;

Induces, recruits, harbors, transports, provides, obtains or maintains a person by any means, knowing, or in reckless disregard of the fact, that threats, violence, force, intimidation, fraud, duress or coercion will be used to cause the person to engage in prostitution, or to enter any place within this State in which prostitution is practiced, encouraged or allowed for the purpose of sexual conduct or prostitution;

By threats, violence, force, intimidation, fraud, duress, coercion, by any device or scheme, or by abuse of any position of confidence or authority, or having legal charge, takes, places,harbors, induces, causes, compels or procures a person to engage in prostitution, or to enter any place within this State in which prostitution is practiced, encouraged or allowed for the purpose of sexual conduct or prostitution; or
