In Nevada, certain forms of prostitution are legal and regulated in licensed brothels located in specific counties. Prostitution laws in Nevada are unique compared to the rest of the United States, as they grant limited legal recognition to specific areas and establishments for the practice. It's important to note that prostitution laws may vary between counties, and this response provides a general overview.

What Are the Criminal Penalties for Prostitution in Nevada?

Prostitution or solicitation is a misdemeanor offense, punishable by a maximum jail term of 6 months and/or a fine of up to $1,000. However, if a person solicits a child under 18 for prostitution, it is considered a category D felony that carries a prison sentence of up to 4 years and a maximum fine of $5,000.

However, first-time violators may enter a diversion program. So long as they complete community service or pay a fine, complete an AIDS Awareness class, and avoid other criminal activity, the charge may be dismissed or reduced to another low-level offense.
