Assembly Bill Addresses Persons Aiding Crime After Fact
The Nevada Assembly judiciary committee is reviewing a bill that trims the list of people exempt from being an accessory from a crime after that fact.
Democratic Assemblywoman Teresa Benitez-Thompson of Reno presented AB116 to the committee Tuesday to address a statute unaltered since 1911.
Currently, if a husband or wife, brother or sister, parent or grandparent, or child or grandchild were to aid or conceal a relative after that relative committed a crime, the maximum penalty is a misdemeanor for obstruction of justice. AB116 removes all exemptions from that statue except the husband or wife relationships.
Benitez-Thompson says amendments are likely to determine appropriate sentencing -- likely something in the range of up to a year in prison -- and to define what level of aid is permissible. (AP)
