Nevada Revised Statutes Section 179A.270 - Procedure in Criminal Cases

Legislative declaration. The Legislature hereby finds and declares that:

1. A significant number of offenders in Nevada have been convicted of sexual offenses. Many of these offenders have been convicted of sexual offenses on more than one occasion and many of these offenders began committing sexual offenses as juveniles.

2. There is a great need for a continuing statistical analysis regarding the recidivism of offenders who commit sexual offenses so that the most appropriate punishment and treatment may be identified to prevent these offenders from committing further sexual offenses.
