Nevada Revised Statutes Section 171.015 - Procedure in Criminal Cases

Jurisdiction of offense commenced without, but consummated within, this state; consummation through agent. When the commission of a public offense, commenced without the State, is consummated within its boundaries, the defendant is liable to punishment therefor in this state, though he was out of the State at the time of the commission of the offense charged. If he consummated it in this state, through the intervention of an innocent or guilty agent, or any other means proceeding directly from himself, in such case the jurisdiction is in the county in which the offense is consummated.
