Penalties for Kidnapping

In Nevada, there are two types of kidnapping charges: first-degree and second-degree kidnapping. First-degree kidnapping occurs when a person willfully seizes, abducts, confines, kidnaps, conceals, or carries away another individual with the intent to hold the person for ransom, to commit sexual assault, extortion, robbery, or to inflict significant bodily harm or kill.

This type of kidnapping charge is considered a category A felony, punishable by a maximum life sentence. However, the punishment ultimately depends on if the victim suffered substantial bodily harm during the kidnapping act or from the subsequent detention.

Second-degree kidnapping comprises all other acts of taking someone without their lawful consent with the intent to keep the individual secretly imprisoned within the state. This type of kidnapping charge is a category B felony, punishable by a prison sentence between two and 15 years, as well as a fine of up to $15,000.
