No, unless prosecutors agree to reduce the charges or they cannot show beyond a reasonable doubt that strangulation occurred
Nevada law classifies any battery domestic violence incident as an automatic felony if the defendant allegedly strangled the victim. This holds true even if the incident was short and no one was hurt. Merely the act of holding the victim's neck qualifies as a felony under Nevada battery domestic violence law.
Battery domestic violence with strangulation is a category C felony in Nevada. The penalties include one to five years in Nevada State Prison and a fine of up to $15,000. Watch our video on the Nevada felony of battery domestic violence:
