Understanding Trespassing Under Nevada Law

Protecting the rights of individuals to their property is foundational to our legal system. Trespassing in Nevada is not just a simple matter; it's a violation of one's property rights. Here's what you need to know:

Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) Chapter 207.200 on Trespassing

NRS 207.200 explains trespassing as:

  1. Entering someone's land or building with the intent to annoy or commit any unlawful act; or
  2. Remaining on a property after being warned not to.

Methods of Warning Against Trespassing:

  • Painting certain structures or objects with fluorescent orange paint.
  • Fencing the area.
  • Displaying "no trespassing" signs.
  • Using the land for cultivation.
  • Verbal or written demand by the property owner or occupant for a guest to vacate.

Note: The term "fence" doesn't include barriers made of barbed wire, and "cultivated land" refers to cleared land planted with crops. "Guest" refers to anyone who's shown hospitality, excluding tenants.

Types of Trespassing in Nevada

  1. Simple Trespass: Entering or staying on a property without committing any other illegal acts. This is usually a misdemeanor.
  2. Aggravated Trespass: Entering with the intent to interfere with the property's lawful use. This can lead to more severe penalties.

Defending Against Trespassing Charges

Being accused doesn't equate to guilt. When defending against trespassing charges, consider:

  1. Lack of Intent: Demonstrating you had no intention to trespass.
  2. Lawful Authority/Consent: Proving you had permission to be on the property.
  3. Mistaken Identity: Providing evidence that you were not the trespasser.
  4. Property Ownership/Rightful Possession: Establishing your legal rights over the property.

Penalties for Trespassing in Nevada
  • Simple Trespass: Up to $1,000 fine and/or up to 6 months imprisonment.
  • Aggravated Trespass: Penalties can be more severe, ranging from higher fines to longer imprisonment terms, depending on circumstances.
